Modern art, garden trails, great shops, a museum, and nice views of the river all make Bluff View a great destination. I'd suggest visiting in the spring when the trees are in bloom. Also go by Rembrandt's and get a good cup of coffee. Take some time to zone out here on a pretty day off. You won't regret it.

Chattanooga is the place to walk! This is a beautiful area! There are several restaurants up there, including the hidden Bluff View Bakery and a coffee/sandwich shop-Rembrandts. And, even a museum or two. There is also a path by the Gardens, that takes you down a residential area where the homes are unique and some of them remind me of... More

This is a small area, like 1/3 a city block so not a lot of walking but by the time you check it out you can spend an hour or two (if you eat) there. They have an outdoor park with art work displayed and it over looks the river. There is a really good bakery, Italian restaurant and coffee... More

I cannot tell you how many times I have taken my son to walk around the art district. This is free fun and great exercise. He still loves to go. It always has special memories for us.

The Art District is always my first stop when I get into Chattanooga. It's a great place to park the car and have hours of things to do within walking distance. Great restaurants, Rembrandt's for a coffee and desserts, and a walk around the beautiful river views and even sculpture garden.

With the Tennessee Aquarium, the North Shore, the River walk, Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, the Walnut Street Bridge, and so much more close by, the Bluff View Art District is often overlooked as one of the area's coolest attractions. Anchored by the renown Hunter Art Museum, which was originally one of Chattanooga's most prestigious mansions, the district features wonderful restaurants,... More

If you visit Chattanooga this is a compact extremely beautiful neighborhood to explore up the hill from the downtown riverfront district. When you reach the entrance to Walnut St Bridge you are very close because it is just off the paved walking path near the museum. There are art galleries an popular coffee shop and a couple of fine dining... More

Excellent galleries within easy walking distance and Houston's Museum was very interesting and eclectic. Rembrandt's was a pleasant break in gallery hopping.

The Bluff View Art District overlooks the Tennessee river. You can walk or bike around the area. There are restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors and an art museum.( Which is free the first Sunday of every month.) From there walk across the pedestrian bridge to another great are that offers more restaurants, bars and shops.

We were going to take a few photos of my daughter for her senior pictures. We really only wanted the black wrought iron door. We were shocked that you had to actually pay for a permit to take a few photos! If it was a wedding maybe I could understand that! We got in a wedding at the Choo Choo... More
