Offers a beautiful view of the river, the nearby art museum, and parts of Chattanooga. Highly recommended as a point of local interest and as a jogging/walking site.

The bridge is pretty old and provides a nice walk to the other side. The view is pretty and you will see a lot. I recommend walking the bridge.

The mountain where Rock City is located is mostly residential, there is a B&B but downtown is the best place to stay because there is so much to see and do there.
