We nearly didn't bother to visit Rock City. We'd seen ads for it, but after a few days of sightseeing in Chattanooga we didn't plan to visit. But.....we are from England and it was the last day of the holiday, so I cajoled my somewhat reluctant husband up to the top of Lookout Mountain. Let's just take a look, I said. It was absolutely enchanting. We laughed like children as we squeezed through the narrow passages and pathways, but what really blew us away was the views. We just don't get views like that in the UK. We enjoyed every second of the visit and we became interested in the history of the attraction and those famous painted barns. I only wish I'd been able to bring back one of those birdhouses for my garden, but we'd never have been allowed to take it on the plane!
