Nestled on a ridge-top with dramatic vistas spanning seven states, Rock City started in the late 1920s as a Ma and Pa miniature golf course nestled in a garden setting. Barns across the Midwest were painted with large black and White “See Rock City” during the 1930s to spur tourists--today more than 100 barns are still adorned. Tourists now come in droves from around the world to savor See Rock City's Fairyland Caverns, Mother Goose Village, shops, and restaurants,live musical performances, and dramatic vistas from Lover Leap.
