We wish we’d have planned to spend more time here! The history and the beauty together are just amazing! You can choose to drive to each monument but if you are able, the walking tour is by far the best way to experience it.

We went here on a warm Saturday. The film was great and very explanatory. Gave a great overview. We drove the circle tour around the battlefield. Climb the Wilder Tower, especially if you have kids. Great view from the top.

In three hours you could see a few of the main attractions, such as Wilder Tower and Snodgrass hill. The park is about 30 minutes from Chattanooga.
