    It's been advertised on barns and billboards across much of the country. It's a natural wonderland with a rock formation called "fat man's squeeze." And it's been mentioned in a country song.

    Rock City, a cultural and scenic capstone near Chattanooga with endurance like few other tourist attractions, is celebrating its 80th anniversary.

    About 400,000 visitors annually come to see the 200-million-year-old rock formations, enjoy scenic vistas and walk among 400 native plant species on 90-minute self-guided tours along a stone path.
