So much to do in this quaint space known as the bluffs overlooking the Tennessee River. From art museums and galleries to sculpture gardens and the riverwalk, even a tour just looking at the architecture is well worth it. Then you have Rembrandt's, Tony's Pasta, Back Inn Cafe and two B&B's. A must see while in Chattanooga. Oh, and there... More

Set in the backdrop of beautiful architecture and history you will find so much to peruse. Beautiful sculptures and flora adorn the art district area. In addition, there is an art gallery, gardens, and museums that inspire the artistic fascination. The immaculately kept walking grounds, view of the river, and so much to do begs for allowing much time to... More

Such a great place to take a stroll on a nice day. Originally went to see the sculpture garden (as a college assignment), but have made many trips here since. Very peacefull and beautiful!

Great area for walking and browsing the shops. Great stop at Tony's for dinner. Not far from the Aquarium and the Riverfront Park. Lots of outdoor art.

The three restaurants in the art district are all worth visiting. I love sitting outside Rembrandt's in summer as it feels like a piece of Europe in Chattanooga. The view from the balcony at Tony's is also amazing.

We've been to Chattanooga quite a few times, and truly enjoy this city. We decided to head to the Bluff View Art District for lunch (we walked there from the Marriott Hotel) after we toured through the River Market (arts & crafts booths) near the Tennessee Aquarium. My husband and I both enjoy local artists, and we were not disappointed... More
