  • Me and my husband went last year for our 1st anniversary to the battlefields because he and I are civil war reenactors and he had been before and knew I would love how beautiful it is. He was completely right. The forest there is breath taking and the historical audio tour is so informative and really helps you understand the history of what is now my favorite place. The staff are also so friendly. If you have the chance, go. It's the trip of a life time if you love both beautiful old woods and/or history.
  • Another fantastic historical site. Go to the visitor center first, talk to the guides and watch the movie. Then stay the trip. Bring your walking shoes and plan on hiking into the woods to see the real locations where action from the movie happened. Tough to take I all in one day so is you have a few days, pick a few skirmishes per day then "deep dive" into those each day. Guided tour by cell phone was not very helpful so read up on the history before going... It will make it so much more meaningful.
  • As an amateur history buff, this place is awesome for details on the battle for Chickamauga during the Civil War. There are monuments and plaques all over the fields and interspersed along wooded trails. You can take a guided, or unguided tour, by car, hiking, or even on horseback. One of my favorite places to visit is Wilder Tower.
  • A fantastic Civil War historical park. Excellent visitors center with great displays and an amazing rifle collection. The video presentation sets a great tone of what happened here. I opted for a cell phone self guided tour. You drive from spot to spot and dial in the tour stop number and you listen to great explanations of events as you are standing right on the ground where it happened. Amazing and humbling.
  • Very nice spot atop Lookout Mountain. Great for stretching your legs on a road trip. A self-pay machine is near the park entrance. The park isn't very large, but offers lots of shade during the summer.
