Well, if you're thinking of Point Park, the Battle of Chattanooga, the Incline Railway, Ruby Falls, and Rock City, you need a full day and possibly part of another one.

Which specific sites are you going to see?

If you are short on time, I suggest you omit Ruby Falls, enjoy lunch at the cafe in Rock City and visit Point Park and the Battle of Chattanooga.

I would put the Incline as the top thing to do and then Rock City number two. If you go to Point Park, you may also want to include the Battles for Chattanooga Museum as well.

I have to disagree; Rock City gives you much more "bang for your buck" than the Incline does for the price you pay.

As far as getting good value for the money you spend, IMO, only Rock City and the TN Aquarium in Chattanooga measure up.

I wouldn't waste time and money on Ruby Falls. It's nothing special and just not worth it. Nearby Racoon Mtn Caverns or The Lost Sea just up I-75 in Sweetwater are better cave choices.
