Your local LFS is the best place. Marcorocks dot com has/had really awesome rock, but its dry and would need curing.
Or try:
Live Rock and Live Sand: Live Saltwater Aquarium Rock and Sand

No problem . Here are a couple places that I could not think of last night , brain fry I guess ...
Either way you will need to cycle/recure it , but I have heard good things about these places ...
http://www.tampabaysaltwater.com/

Premium Aquatics

Aquarium live rock

FloridaPets
I have ordered from florida pets and had great experiences from them ...
you will need to cure it again but you end up with some intresting things such as mantis shrimps ,crabs , sponges , mini brittle stars some are great hitch hikers some not so much , One place to stay away from is aquacon they are not ones to actually send what you pay for and are scammers .... all these above links I have heard great things about !!

Apparently
Marco Rocks The finest aquarium rock available, base rock, live rock, reef rock, marco rock, reef tank saltwater fish, live corals, Marco rocks, Fiji live rock, Tonga Live rock
is now curing as well, they have some awesome shaped rock, but probably nothing with goodies. Remember that with those "goodies" you might also get things you don't want in your tank. Things like mantis shrimp, nasty crabs, or bad algae.

Well all new shipped LR should be placed in a tub outside the tank for final curing before being placed in the DT. That way you should be able to find all the nasties (except for isopods) before they get to your tank.

This is only if your tank is up and running , if you are starting it I see no reason why you could not put it in your tank to start off it is a great source of ammonia ...
