Lookout Mountain is halfway between Tennessee and Georgia. The Rock City Gardens, for instance, is in Georgia, whereas Point Park is in Tennessee. Quite confusing because the city name’s the same. this is the site of the Chattanooga Battle, one deathly blow for the Confederacy...More

The views are stunning but there is a historical story told there. Definitely worth the time to wander through and read the info. Great for panoramic pictures too.

Despite the small size, I found out a great deal of historical information. Liked the way it presented both sides of the conflict without sugarcoating the facts. Highly recommend that people see this historical site at least once.

Between riding the incline train up and back down the mountain, we walked over to Point Park....just a few blocks away. The park has some nice walking trails, lots of great monuments and an amazing view down to Chattanooga. Very historical and interesting.
