The Bluff View Art District is a wonderful area of Downtown Chatt that should be visited by all! Great shops with a wonderful, quaint feel about it. I didn't eat there, but the aromas coming from Tony's was enticing! Loved the bakery and the sculpture park overlooking the river view. The only thing I think BVAD needs is a fine... More

Throughout the city, one can see sculptures, murals, fountains, modern and traditional architecture, all in some of the most beautiful natural and designed settings of any Southern city. It is reminiscent of great European cities for its... More

Park on the High Street bridge or close to the Hunter Art Museum and put on your walking shoes. You can spend all day in this district: breakfast and coffee at Rembrandt's, walk across the glass bridge to downtown and back, Tony's Pasta for lunch, Hunter Art Museum and art gardens outside.
