Light the Lantern of Love – Date Night at Ruby Falls

Discover the legendary love story at the heart of Ruby Falls’ history with a special after-hours date night. Hidden deep within Lookout Mountain, you will find an adventurous twist on celebrating Valentine’s Day at Romance at Ruby.

During this unforgettable date night, an expert guide will share tales of local legendary romances, including the love story that led to the discovery and naming of Ruby Falls. Limited to only 10 couples per tour, you and your valentine will stroll along the cavern trail, seeing the beauty of the waterfaell and ancient stone formations with only the soft glow of hand-held lanterns. Romance at Ruby is a reservation-only event, available on select dates in February and includes a professional photo and special surprises.

Expert tip: Arrive 20 minutes early to enjoy the moon-lit view of the Tennessee Valley from historic Lookout Mountain Tower. For greatest availability, purchase tickets early as reservations fill quickly.
