Iconic Ruby Falls celebrates its discovery day on Dec. 30
Ruby Falls has been one of the most visited tourist destinations in Chattanooga for many years. Buried inside beautiful Lookout Mountain, it is the only underground waterfall open to the public and a unique attraction, with more than 400,000 people visiting annually.
For historians and geologists, it was an exciting discovery in the 1920s. In 1928, chemist Leo Lambert discovered the formerly hidden Ruby Falls Cave and its waterfall. He later took his wife Ruby to see the falls and decided to name them after her.
In addition to the cave, tourists can visit the ZIPstream Aerial Adventure Course next door and look down at the beautiful Tennessee Valley from the Lookout Mountain tower.
Ruby Falls is now about to celebrate 87 years since its discovery in 1928. Every visitor at Ruby Falls on Dec. 30 will receive a flyer with fun cave facts and a vintage-style postcard to commemorate the occasion.
The first 87 guests to tour on this day can take the tour for the original $2 entrance fee!
