Toni's Restaurant is in this area and well worth a visit, It features out side seating looking over the river. This is a really fine restaurant with reasonable pricing and excellent service. Be prepared to wait as it is very... More

If you are visiting Chattanooga, take the time to wander up to the arts district. I expected more art galleries. There are a few, but being named the art district, I thought there would be more. The sculpture garden along the river is a wonderful area to take photos. If you are staying in the downtown area, it is a... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn greatly. We did arrive during high school prom week, thus found the on-street parking very competitive; parking is a definite drawback.

then this is a great place to go. They have art work on the street as well as a garden area when you can enjoy a quiet minute. This is all overlooking the river TV and just gives you a sense of calm and tranquility. My grandson went with me and he really enjoyed the life size art as well... More

This area is really nifty. We spent an hour or so just walking around, looking at sculptures and enjoying the atmosphere. I definitely intend to go back on my next Chattanooga visit now that I know how gluten allergen friendly the restaurants located here are. Aside from beautiful artwork- there are a lot of neat little shops and galleries in... More

We went today and walked around. I loved the outdoor art placed around the streets. It's very close to the aquarium so easy access. The little inns looked neat, but didn't go in any of them or the museum. Ate at Tony's and will definitely go back. Can't wait until I have more time to go explore again.

We walked around here Wednesday night it was a nice area and a nice walk. There were sculptures and nice places to visit like shops and restaurants. A lot of things closed around five or six including the art museum except Thursday night.

I went back almost every day I was in Chatt. A delightful little area with trendy restaurants, a sculpture garden, a wonderful art museum, a few cute stores and awesome coffee shop. You can also get to the Walnut Street Bridge via the glass walkway.

Had lunch at Tony's. Excellent. We also like Rembrandt's for coffee and pastries. There is a very nice art gallery and sculpture garden. Easy walk over to the Hunter museum.

This is an all round great place to visit, walk around, sleep and dine all within walking distance of downtown Chattanooga. Bluff View Art District is just a beautiful place in general. Extremely well kept.
