Had a great time walking in the gardens, going thru between rocks, taking pictures especially in the Lover's Leap. We all enjoyed this tour and is a must to see when in Chattanooga.

We took the Ruby Falls and Rock city combo (the incline was closed due to repairs). Ruby Falls is a must see. Rock city was great. We loved the short walk to the top. There are some stairs and narrow passageways but didn't have any problem. Its pricy but I highly recommend it.

Whether you go at the beginning of fall for the Halloween-ish type attractions (corn maze, hayrides) or at the end of Autumn when the Christmas walk-through is assembled, you will love Lookout Mountain. We have been several years in a row and it never gets old.

We were in Chattanooga to help a sick friend but we got to quickly drive up Lookout Mountain. There is a popular place called Rock City that looked marvelous and I'm told you can see 7 states from there. Also, there is a civil war battlefield called Chickamauga. The views driving up the road are amazing.

We saw the ad plate all the way from GA. It is a mountain at the great location with a lot human touch. Masked the beauty of the nature. Went to the Rock City. Just like a playground . Maybe it is good for a family with kids.

This is not the first time I have been here, but every time feels like the first time. It is so beautiful, so much to see. Some of the attractions were a little dated, but still worth the money.

I had known of Lookout Mountain as a Civil War battle site but had never visited. It turns out that the battle was not much to write home about (outmanned Confederate cannon batteries forced to retreat by a superior Union infantry force) but the views made the visit worthwhile. The height of the plateau is so great that it gives... More

To be honest, the only thing I liked about Lookout Mountain was the view, and the BBQ. It's a tourist trap in my opinion and it's not cheap. It was around $50 just to get in and prices go up from there. We had to do it though, just won't do it again.
