This area is just 3-4 blocks up from the downtown Aquarium starting at the "Walnut Street Bridge". It is a very nice stroll through the streets around the Hunter Museum and along the Bluff of Tn River with outdoor art work all around that changes frequently, ending with a small "art park". Also, great coffee shop and restaurants.

We stopped for breakfast, thought it was just coffee and muffins. Left and walked around to see if there was any other breakfast. We decided to go back and glad we did! They have a small breakfast menu with eggs, etc., but was really good! There were tables in the back and a really cute patio with tables. If it... More

It was a really cold day, but we still really enjoyed walking around the area. There are places to eat, get coffee, art displays. We didn't go inside the art museum, stayed outdoors. Walking bridges led to river area and Aquarium. Plan on returning on a beautiful sunny day!

We walked from the convention center area to Bluff View Art District. This is a very hilly walk. Great exercise but well worth the walk! Beautiful area and be sure to see all the art works & restaurants.

This is a lovely area of Chattanooga. We parked the car and walked along the sculpture park and then over to the Hunter Art Museum. Beautiful views of the river from up here. There are also many cute shops , cafes and restaurants.

This area offers a beautiful vista of the Tennessee River with a wonderful museum, fabulous restaurants and quaint inns/hotels. You can walk the bridge to the north side of the river from here too. Highly recommend Rembrandt's in this area for great coffee, soups, sandwiches and sweets!

At the end of the bluff are some amazing views of the river and a cute little park with several sculptures and artwork. There a few B and... More

Park the car and start strolling the area. So many unique craftsmen shops, tucked away little cafes and sculptures to enjoy.
