Lookout Mountain is Chattanooga's Best-Kept Secret

Nestled in Hamilton County, Lookout Mountain is a town that is unique in a very special way. A town that lets you be in two places at once automatically has unique appeal. Lookout Mountain, a Chattanooga suburb of less than 2,000, straddles the Tennessee-Georgia state line and offers visitors and residents a taste of Chattanooga's breathtaking beauty. Life on this mountain range — in both Lookout Mountain, TN and Lookout Mountain, GA — is nothing short of spectacular. Even with this “two-world” distinction, the 1,800 residents of the community are as close-knit as ever.
