“Unmissable Chattannooga triple attraction”
Review of Lookout Mountain

Ranked #8 of 153 things to do in Chattanooga
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We obtained triple tickets for Lookout Mountain, Rose Falls and Rock City. Whilst we ran out of time for Rock City, we managed the other two and were blown away by the natural beauty and breathtaking views. The incline railway was first, and I must admit being a tad nervous as the incline got steeper and steeper but this was tempered by the sheer engineering inventiveness of this train and the knowledge that it is completely safe. At the top, the view was incredible, and it's worth paying the quarter for the use of the telescope. The gift shop was OK - try some of the baked goods. Ruby Falls, at the top of a bit of a winding road (lovely to drive but my wife was a bit scared) with a good sized car park. Here the visitors centre was very attractive, with a good selection of souvenirs and snacks. We spent almost 4 hours on the two things we did and ran out of time.

The curvy mountain roads make me nervous and the ear-popping is slightly annoying, but is is all worth it to visit this beautiful scenery. We purchased combo tickets and visited Ruby Falls, Rock CIty, and rode the Incline. My daughters ages 15 and 7 were both entertained by all three activites. It was a great family experience!

Visited for one day in June 2013 traveling from Florida back home to Illinois. Absolutely amazing views & scenery. Had a wonderful time walking the trail and being at the top to see seven states and feel above the clouds. Highly recommend to visit. Had a great time.

If you have not been here, do so. The view is far more than spectacular. We spent several hours and really did not want to leave.
