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.

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.

Spend a beautiful sunny day around the Bluff View Art District. Be sure to check out the Bluff View bakery for the best bread in the Chattanooga area and Rembrandt's for a great selection of refreshing coffee and pastries.

This are is a must see when staying in downtown. Just 5-15 min walk to get her depending on where you are starting. A hilly area over looking the river, with lovely small road and paths and hidden sculpture gardens, nice local coffee shops and bakeries. Just a great place to explore.

LOVED the sculpture garden (Icarus is a must see), loved the quaint bakeries & shops, & the view is spectacular! We even saw a couple get engaged. This area is a hidden gem
