Best Time to Visit Chattanooga Tennessee
If you are interested in taking the shuttle up Lookout Mountain, it is recommended that you visit during the summer - the only time it runs. The worlds steepest incline railway, running from 3917 St. Elmo Ave. near the foot of the mountain (on bus route #14), runs all year long. January through March aren't the best months to visit, considering most of Chattanooga's attractions are outdoors. Try to visit during spring, summer, or even fall.
