The lights were very pretty. Don't go on Saturday. Hard to find a place to park & the walk ways get backed up pretty bad. Not good for small children, strollers or the elderly.

If you are in the area you must stop at Rock City! It is beautiful! The views are breath taking. We were able to see the enchanted Christmas lights and they were wonderful. We spent the day and returned for the Christmas lights you will not be disappointed!

Plenty of history to see and campy tourist stuff too! I prefer the history to Rock City or Ruby Falls. The overlook view of Chattanooga is worth the trip.

The view is awesome! I'll overlook some of the cheesy stuff for that view. It's amazing that you can see so many different states from one spot.

If you are visiting Chattanooga, we would think that the overlook from Lookout Mountain should be at the top of your to do list. The view, when combined with the Civil War history, make this a magical place. We were there on a perfectly clear day and could see the Smokey Mountains in the distance. The views of the Tennessee...

Rode the Inclined Rail line to the top of Lookout Mountain! Very cool ride and the view was phenomenal from every point, bottom to top. Clear day allowed us to see for miles. Gift shop at the top was a little junky, but the view was worth it! This is one of the must-do's when visiting Chattanooga.

We spent the better part of the day in and around Lookout Mountain. Some very cool sights and even cooler history. Make sure you take the time to check out the views from either side of the ridge.

We drove to the top of Lookout Mountain as we got into town after most everything had closed. Going up in the dark and seeing the lights of Chattanooga was amazing and beautiful!!!
