Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga

(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Mountain contains three famous American attractions, even though the view of Chattanooga Valley alone makes visiting this historical mountain ridge worthwhile. This wide plateau has a significant place in history as the site of an alleged Revolutionary War battle and the 1863 Civil War Battle of Lookout Mountain. Now the mountain is used for recreational activities, including rock climbing. The site's most popular attractions are Incline Railway, Ruby Falls, and Rock City. Incline Railway is the steepest passenger railway in the world and has been operating since 1895. Ruby Falls is America's largest underground waterfall at 44m (145 ft), and Rock City features a large outdoor waterfall and Swing-A-Long bridge.
