I never get tired of visiting here, the view is amazing. There is a lot to do in the area for familie, from the military parks to Rock City and the Incline Railroad. We've been visiting the area for years.

Lookout Mountain is tapered on both sides with an escarpment of short cliffs at the crest, so when driving up the mountain you really don't get a sense of height until right at the top, and then only for about 1/4 mile and... More
