And, the answer for the the question is :

Lookout Mountain, Georgia

Explanation:

[STC00490] If the weather is clear, you can see out over seven states at the same time from the peak of Lookout Mountain (with a little help from binoculars). The highest point is located in Georgia, and from there you can see Tennessee, which is only a half mile away, Alabama, which is 25 miles away, North Carolina, which is 50 miles away, South Carolina, which is 80 miles away, and Kentucky and Virginia, which are all 80 miles away (about 120 miles). Due to the mountain’s 2,388-foot top and the low terrain that surrounds it, Lookout Mountain is one of the few spots in the United States where so many states can be seen at the same time. A nurse who served during the American Civil War is rumored to have been the first person to look out over the vista from Lookout Mountain. She is quoted as saying in a letter that “From this position, on a clear day with a decent glass, I think you can view seven states.” It turned out that she was correct!
