If you are still tooling around Chattanooga, you have to visit Ruby Falls. This particular attractions falls under the "I can’t believe it" category -and that’s just with the history alone.
What exactly makes Ruby Falls unique? Definitely has to be a waterfall. Don’t say that you have seen many waterfalls, and yes, even this Southerner knows that Niagara Falls is quite spectacular; however, this 145-foot waterfall is located 1,120 feet beneath the mountain.
Believe it or not, one of the best times to visit Ruby Falls is on a rainy day. Sounds odd, but the rain, which has been quite scare in the South lately, actually increases the water flow.
If you decide to visit on a sunny day, don’t forget the Lookout Mountain Tower. Located at over 1,500 feet above sea level, you can’t beat the views (and photo oops) of the Valley and downtown Chattanooga.
