rock city is located just south of lookout mountain tennessee in lookout mountain georgia. in the early 1800's visitors to lookout mountain reached the site by mule back. the modern rock city attraction was opened by garnet carter in 1932. between 1936 and the mid 1950's carter painted "see rock city" signs on over 900 barns in the southeast and midwest. today most of these barns no longer exist and have been replaced by "see rock city" bird houses. carter built the world's first miniture golf course at rock city. on a clear day you can see seven states from the lover's leap overlook at rock city. this historic park is a great place to visit when traveling with children.
