At some point, chances are you’ve been to Rock City. Either as a child, a parent or a tourist, you’ve probably walked through this wonderland, pausing on the Swinging Bridge to catch your breath and gasp at the incredible view.
However, I doubt you’ve had the pleasure of actually walking in Frieda’s footsteps, Frieda Utermoehlen Carter being Rock City’s co-founder and visionary of the Enchanted Trail.
Rock City is offering Walking in Frieda’s Footsteps, historical guided walking tours of Rock City Gardens. Available most days during normal operating hours, the tours are a mere $5 per ticket upgrade from general admission, and there is minimum group size of 15 people. Imagine touring behind the scenes with your own personal guide and horticulture expert as you learn about the infinite number of native plants, most actually planted in the early 1930s by Frieda herself. Fascinated with European folklore as well as wildflowers and rock gardens, she planted columbine, coralbells and hemlock trees that are still there today.
Schedule a tour during the beautiful month of October, and see Rock City again!
