This self-contained and pedestrian-friendly city is a delight for tourists with its shopping hubs, eateries and pubs. The place very nicely planned with its shops and restaurants in Sec-17, Hotels in Sec-22, and Museums (with Harrapan Period relics) & Galleries in Sec-9 and so on. Places to visit that make this place an attractions for tourists are the Rock Garden by Nek Chand, The Capitol, The Secretariat, Sukhna Lake, etc. The Sukhna Lake is a popular hangout with cafeteria, souvenir shops and a mini-amusement park.
