Ruby Falls at Lookout Mountain

Chattanooga, TN
Located in Tennessee

Ruby Falls is one of the oldest and most popular attractions in the Southeast. The historic attraction has welcomed millions of guests over its long, colorful history and continues to be a tradition for generations of visitors to the Chattanooga area. Back in 1928, when Ruby Falls founder Leo Lambert had the idea of opening a cave as a tourist attraction, tourism as we know it today was in its infancy. Little did anyone know that his "roadside attraction" would soon be a must-see for families from all over the world.

The subterranean voyage to Ruby Falls is as amazing as the falls itself. With countless glistening stalagmites made from heavenly white onyx, millions of stalactites hanging from the ceiling, and many rock formations with whimsical names such as “the Dragons Foot,” “Angel's Wing,” and the “Elephant's Foot,” the Ruby Falls cave is a wonderland filled with many of nature’s hidden beauties.

Guided tours to Ruby Falls last a little over an hour and are led by an experienced guide who shares with the group many stories and facts about the caverns and this historic attraction. The highlight of the tour, Ruby Falls, is a true phenomenon. This 145-foot underground waterfall runs year-round and provides visitors with an amazing view that is only accessible from the tour. The waterfall is illuminated with state-of-the-art lighting, which provides an astounding view of this landmark.

A trip to Ruby Falls would not be complete without a journey to the top of the Lookout Mountain Tower. The tower provides visitors with an unobstructed view of the Tennessee River Valley and downtown Chattanooga from a point over 1,500 feet above sea level. This must-see panoramic view has long been considered one of the best from Lookout Mountain....
