This is the first place that I tell travelers that must try. Hard to explain the ambiance, but it's like a visit to a European village. Coffee shop, restaurants, B&B Inns, reminiscent of boutique hotels, an artisan bakery, sculpture garden, art gallery and bocce ball court. The family who owns this lovely place, revitalized a declining area and created a... More

The area is scenic and very interesting but I have to give this an average rating because it is not wheelchair friendly. It is impossible to access most of the eateries and small galleries/shops in this area.

First of, my partner and I love Chattanooga. We don't visit there that often, but when we do and the weather is nice and cool, we loved to visit this spot. It has a fabulous art shown room filled with great paintings, sculptures, ceramic and jewelry pieces by local and outside artist. One can always stop by Rembrandt's for a... More

My husband and I love to visit this part of the city of Chattanooga, for its beauty, views of the Tennessee River, walking paths, art galleries, and a few very wonderful dining establishments. There is a bakery that provides some incredibly delicious offerings to the local eateries. Yum! Don't forget to visit Rembrant's Coffee House there!

This art district is very unique. I felt like I was in Italy because of the views of the river, the buildings, the artwork and everything else. We didn't get to spend much time here but what time we did, it was worth stopping and getting out and looking at the unique artwork.

We had dinner at the Back Inn Cafe and it was a very pretty location and the food was terrific. Here was nothing not to like here.

We strolled through the art district after visiting the Hunter Museum. It is a small area, but nicely landscaped with several sculptures laced throughout, as well as a small but well-manicured sculpture garden. There are a few restaurants, an artisan bakery, a bed & breakfast, and an art gallery here as well to enjoy.

Whether you're an art buff or not, it's worth a walk to the Bluff View Art District. The buildings are so neat and there are some great restaurants and shops there. If you're in Chattanooga with some time to kill, go for a walk there.

We wanted so bad to stay here but it was Memorial Day weekend and we didn't start early enough. However, we did ride up to it and walk around. There's lots of history and beautiful architecture everywhere you look. Be sure to stop by Rembrandt's coffee house and bakery while you're in the neighborhood.

My wife and I walked through here on a recent visit to Chattanooga. Bluff View Art District is a historic neighborhood filled with restaurants, a coffee house, art gallery, historic Bed & Breakfast, and plenty of gardens, plazas and courtyards where you can relax and rejuvenate. This is Chattanooga's first art district and stretches over 1.5 city blocks, set high... More
