Skip Ruby Falls, skip lookout mountain. This is the place to see. Quiet, peaceful, serene, with outstanding views. My husband is a huge civil war buff and I stopped here on our way to Atlanta, even though he said no that there probably wasn't much left to see. Boy was he wrong! It might be small when compared to some... More

Get off the incline railway at E Brow Road and walk a few feet down to look at the beauty of the World and the History that has played out in the area. Not to mentioned the beautiful neighborhood.

I drove down to Tennessee with my youngest daughter to move her in to her college dorm. I was there for a couple of days and it was very hectic trying to set her up in her dorm, buy her last minute things and so forth. Her birthday was on August 18, and we were visiting friends in Chattanooga, and... More

This is a beautiful park as well as an historical place. On a clear day you can see five states from on top of Lookout Mountain. You can park for free if you follow the sign to go behind the National Park Service building. It's $3 to go thru the park. If you are a senior, you can get a... More

We have been to this park many times in the past 5 years. My wife and I visit Chattanooga about once a month or so, and we probably stop by this park about half the times we visit. It is a nicely tended park, with some interesting and appealing Civil war memorials. There is a very small museum down the... More

Was fortunate enough to make it up to lookout mountain last weekend. Wasn't a long drive from Chattanooga and was very scenic on the way up to the top. Point Park is different from several of the other attractions that you'll hear about/pass on your way up (Ruby Falls & Rock City). Those attractions carry a little bit higher price... More

I love visiting here. You can catch some really amazing and scenic views of the scenic city from here! The valleys, the Tennessee river bends, the city and nature. We happened to come on a free national parks weekend. I think it's only a few bucks normally to get in but you can also visit the civil war monuments and... More

Entrance fee is only $3 for adults and free for kids. The views would have been great if Chattanooga would be a pretty city- but it's not! Chattanooga looks from above uglier then it looks already if you drive through! Nothing to see except industrial parks or factories or maybe the river. It's a tiny park you can quickly walk... More
