School’s in! Make the most of your time on Lookout Mountain

September 11, 2017 Categories: Seasonal Vacation Planning

Another summer is in the books. And while it has been a season full of fun and excitement, now is the time to take advantage of the kids being back in school. The downside of summer vacation is that everyone else is on vacation too, which means long lines and densely populated attractions. Long lines = less time to enjoy the attractions and natural beauty of Lookout Mountain.

But a little patience goes a long way!

Our attractions are designed to mesh with the stunning scenery and splendor of the mountain while giving you an adventure you won’t forget! So, a trip outside of the busy summer season lets you and the family enjoy your trip to Lookout Mountain devoid of crowds and lengthy lines, whether at Rock City, Ruby Falls, or on the Incline Railway!

More time for you and the family to explore Rock City’s gardens and more time to admire the view of seven states from Lover’s Leap all while enjoying a decrease in temps?! Yes, please! Pose for an extra photo or stand along the railing a little longer without the worry of making room for someone else. Go through the Enchanted Trail for a second time and take another walk across the Swing-a-Long Bridge; it is a wonderful way to relax and catch something you may not have noticed the first time around.

At Ruby Falls, a shorter wait time gets you to the falls as quickly as possible! There is also more time with your knowledgeable tour guide, a veritable wealth of information about the story behind Ruby Falls and the Lookout Mountain Cave. It’s easier to take some time and explore the intricate details of the rock formations—and your time witnessing Ruby Falls doesn’t feel as rushed, leaving ample opportunity to take an extra picture or admire the natural wonder of the cave.

While a trip on the Incline Railway gives you a remarkable view of Chattanooga and the surrounding mountains, the experience is all-encompassing with time to experience the upper and lower terminals while you’re there! After the summer rush has subsided, you can spend plenty of time exploring historic St. Elmo in the valley or Point Park and the Battles for Chattanooga on Lookout Mountain. Shorter lines equals more time to explore all those intricacies fully—and there’s absolutely something for every one in your brood!

Plan your Lookout Mountain adventure on, and take advantage of the shorter lines and wait times while getting into nature this fall!
