Romance in the air

One of the my most memorable trips to Rock City would be a time when I took a new Alabama resident to see the sights. He was very unfamiliar with the Tennessee area, although he had heard of Chattanooga,he had not heard of Rock City. I took him to the gardens as a way of introducing him to our beautiful surroundings. This was a treat for me too, not only was he good looking but he was extremely romantic. I've visited the gardens many times before but this time I allowed him to "lead" me throughout the trails as if it were my first. His excitement was so sincere and genuine. I saw Rock City in a totally different light.  Its just goes to show you, that Rock City is not just for kids. I love to see the gardens at christmas time that's a real treat also.
