Its location provides for a breathtaking destination in the heart of the city where locals and travelers alike may view equally stunning works of art, horticulture and architecture, all of which define the District's unique atmosphere.

“Lovely collection of shops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Stroll through the old stone cottage walkways and enjoy the outdoor sculptures. Nice little bakery/bistro with an outdoor patio. Our favorite place here was the River Gallery. They have a huge selection of different artistic designs and artists. From beautiful blown glass to jewelry to abstract art. Gotta see this place.

“Good to see so much public art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We walked through here at night, so nothing was really open, but I was excited to see so much public art. There is a sculpture on every corner plus a sculpture garden that was closed at the time.

“Need to like art.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Really a nice area with quaint shops. A couple decent restaurants (but not extraordinary). Parking is a problem. If you don't like art then this would not be a head turner.

“Lovely gem in DT Chattanooga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Dined at Tony's Trattoria one night in the Bluff Arts District - what a lovely gem in Chattanooga's DT. Gorgeous cluster of buildings overlooking the city & river with art sculptures dotted all around. Would definitely go back to further explore this little area.

“Unexpected find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Once again pleased with a discovery made through TripAdvisor recommendations, we strolled the Bluff View Art District enjoying the Renaissance Cafe, sculpture garden, and River Front Gallery. Not to be missed on a quick trip through Chattanooga if you're looking for a unique experience.
