We visited Thursday night, December 21, 2017. The lights, scenes, shops, concessions are spectacular. If you like well done Christmas lights this is the place to go. Equally impressive is the awesome view of Chattanooga and the surrounding area lights from the top of Lookout...More

We visited the Enchanted Garden of Lights after Thanksgiving. It is a wonderland for kids but we enjoyed it also. It's very well done and the employees try very hard to make the visit "enchanting". The lights are beautiful and the costumed employees thrilled our...More

Beautiful lights at night in the gardens. The waterfall and Fairy-tale cavern was cool to see. The view off Lookout Mountain was breathtaking.

We made an early morning visit and the sun was out. I image it must get very busy. Excellent views and beautiful surroundings. Some narrow passage ways which were fun passing through.

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
