Ashton Kutcher and girlfriend Mila Kunis spent some time in Chattanooga on Monday visiting Rock City and Ruby Falls.
While at Rock City, they met "gnome doctor" Matt Dutton in the Fairyland Caverns. Kutcher gave a shoutout to Dutton on his Twitter account, thanking him for "keeping Rock City magical for future generations."
"We got wind they were here and they were very low key about it," said spokesperson Meagan Jolley.
Jolley said Rock City President Susan Harris saw the couple taking selfies at Lover's Leap, and offered to take a picture for them. Jolley said the pair spent about an hour and 15 minutes on site before heading over to Ruby Falls.
"I saw them as they were leaving and they were carrying one of our birdhouse ornaments," she said. "Our employees at the ticket desk (and others) talked about how nice they were – that they wished they could’ve stayed for the Lights but were heading to Nashville later – but that everything seemed 'magical'."
