The Bluff view Art district is an aptly named charming district up the bluff of Chattanooga. The houses in this district date from the late 19th-early 20th century, and now house a bed and breakfast (Bluff View Inn), a bakery, restaurants a small museum and an art gallery. We thought the area was ideal for a stay in Chattanooga, as... More

Fantastic view of the city and a bunch of cute little restaurants. We had our Thanksgiving brunch at the Back Inn Cafe again and left with full bellies and smiles on our faces.

Don't miss the gardens past Hunter Museum. It has a great view of the river and lots of statues to admire. We ate lunch at Tony's Italian restaurant.

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

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.
