Rock City Chattanooga

See Rock City & Ruby Falls (Chattanooga)

Visit Rock City & Ruby Falls (Lookout Mountain): These two natural wonders atop Lookout Mountain are a stones throw away from each other so we recommend hitting both spots. Rock City has many options for adventure but we recommend Lover’s Leap, the Swing-A-Long Bridge, and Observation Point for stellar views. Another bonus of Rock City is that it is dog friendly.

Lookout Mountain Chattanooga

Ruby Falls, located over 1120 feet beneath Lookout Mountain, boasts a mammoth 145 feet high waterfall.

Ruby Falls

While the falls is the main attraction, be sure to check out the numerous picture perfect stalactites and stalagmites.
