SO much to see and do on the mountain top. Our faves are Ruby Falls and Rock City. The combo ticket for these is the best and can plan an entire day to see all the sights.

You can see 7 states from the top of this mountain. We also purchased the Lookout Mountain/Ruby Falls package. I'm not sure if it was a better price but my sister who has visited several times did the same. The views are really cool and there are some tight spaces to walk through. There are also these glow in the... More

Talk a walk through the rocks and see the amazing view of the valley below. Don't get stuck in fat man's squeeze!

Luckily the weather held out to visit Lookout Mountain. You could see for miles. Lots of things to do in the area. Civil War enactment at the top. Ruby Falls and Rock City in the area as well as zip lining.

We all really enjoyed "Rock City." It really did feel like a little town of winding passages and roads. Such a beautiful piece of God's work! There's an interesting walk-through at the end with storybook characters. That was neat. Take the time to go up and visit and see the sights from the top!

Beautiful scenery. Rock City is amazing and whimsical and different. The gnomes are a little weird but other then that it's beautiful.

This was the first time in 37 years that I've been back to Lookout Mountain. There was a lot of things I didn't remember but then there things I did remember and it was awesome. I will be taking grandchildren back with me next time I visit.

The views are beyond compare. Civil war history buffs will appreciate it here. Suggest you read alittle bit about the history of Chattanooga and you'll appreciate it all the more.

Wasn't expecting the views we got from lookout mountain in Tennessee. Well laid out and lots of interesting information. Wife and kids really enjoyed it. Peaceful and great scenery. A must stop if you're in the area.
