    Known as the "Jewel of the South," the town of Lookout Mountain is perched atop Lookout Mountain, which is also home to such attractions as Rock City Gardens, Cloudland Canyon State Park and Ruby Falls.

    The City of Lookout Mountain, Georgia and Lookout Mountain, Tennessee both perch atop a mountain which has been a constant landmark in a constantly changing world. Until the mid-1800's the mountain was called 'Chatanuga', a Cherokee word meaning 'mountains looking at each other'. The early pioneers warned each other to 'lookout' when traversing the rapids below the mountain for warring Indians and marauding pirates.

    Rock City atop the mountain, just 6 miles from downtown Chattanooga, is a true marvel of nature featuring massive ancient rock formations, gardens with over 400 native plant species and breathtaking panoramic views where you can see 7 states from the same location. Take an unforgettable journey along the Enchanted Trail where each step reveals natural beauty and wonders along the woodland path. Experience fairytale magic at Fairyland Caverns and Mother Goose Village with gift shops and restaurant.
