I didn't expect to find a world-class art gallery and hand-made chocolates rivaling Europe's finest all within one block overlooking Chattanooga Landing. But it's exactly what you'll find (and a whole bunch more) when you go to the Bluff View Art District. The River Gallery has an amazing collection of art and artists. The artisanal chocolates are just around the... More

This area near the University and the Aquarium is popular with locals and tourists alike, providing smoothly landscaped areas for bicycling, jogging and walking.

The River Gallery may not be Moma, It may not be the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, It may not be the Toledo Museum of Modern Art, but here you can not only see a nice collection that has been gathered from all over the country, but you can purchase the art as well. Then it is off to... More

Great area to walk and see many types of art, sculptures and food. Parking can be tough depending on time of day visited. Galleries and museums as well a quaint shops or eateries to visit. Different experience at night with things lit up so it was fun visiting daytime and again at night. Lovely day.

This District is definitely worth a visit. There's lots of outdoor sculptures around the Hunter Museum (even if you are there in the evening after it closes), and in the small sculpture park down the street from the museum. In fact, there's also a lot of public art throughout the neighborhoods and the walk between the District and downtown. And... More

This is a lovely place to walk around, get a bite to eat, a sip of coffee, an eyeful of the river. My only complaint is that I wish there were more! It's so charming and cozy in every nook and cranny but only occupies a block.

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

It's obvious that Chattanooga has many residents who love art and loved making their city a showcase of beautiful art, architecture, and gardens. 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

Nice for a evening walk The sculpture garden closes before 5 or 6. View over the bridge on river Tennessee is very serene.
