Explore Ruby Falls on Lookout Mountain
February 26, 2019
Chattanooga is an incredibly interesting city to visit, with a long list of attractions worth visiting. There’s no doubt you can keep busy for days on end if you want to. One of the top attractions in the Chattanooga area, and something that should be at the top of everyone that stays at the Chanticleer Inn’s list, is Lookout Mountain. Lookout Mountain is extraordinarily beautiful, and it has a historic legacy just as rich. One of the best parts about staying at the Chanticleer Inn, apart from the luxury guest rooms, amenities, and unbeatable hospitality, is its location, just across the street from the entrance to Lookout Mountain’s famous attractions, including the unrivaled depths of Ruby Falls. It’s an easy thing to check off your bucket list next time your in town. Book your stay at our Chattanooga Bed and Breakfast today!
Located over 1120 feet beneath the surface, Ruby Falls is the nation’s largest and deepest public waterfall. The falls, which has been open as public attraction since the 1930’s, is a stunning 145 feet tall, and features hundreds of gallons of water pouring over it every minute. The cave that leads to Ruby Falls is filled with beautiful natural wonders that have continued to amaze visitors over these last 85 years. Visitors to Ruby Falls can choose from two guided tour options. The regular guided tour is available daily between 8am and 8pm, and will highlight the unique geological features and formations along the way. For a unique glimpse into the wonders of Ruby Falls, plan to be here on a Friday, so you can head deep into the cave under Lookout Mountain with only Lanterns to light the way.
A trip to beautiful Ruby Falls wouldn’t be complete without the unique aerial adventure awaiting you in the treetops of Ruby Falls, which opens up again for the season in March of 2019. At the ZIPStream Aerial Adventure, you’ll find a set of fun challenges, along with breathtaking views of Chattanooga that can’t be found anywhere else.
