6. BLUFF VIEW ART DISTRICT

Within walking distance of downtown Chattanooga, Bluff View Art District is a creative haven that specializes in the visual, culinary and landscape arts. The historic neighborhood sits high atop a bluff overlooking the Tennessee River and offers visitors a one-of-a-kind experience. While there, you can browse through River Gallery, which exhibits fine art and museum quality crafts from local, regional, national and international artists. Whether you are meandering through the sculpture garden or watching the local artisans bake breads, make chocolates or roast coffee through the large paned windows throughout the district, there is something for everyone to enjoy. You can also find something to suit any taste at one of the three restaurants, including authentic Italian at Tony’s Pasta Shop & Trattoria, elegant global cuisine at Back Inn Cafe or European style desserts, pastries, coffees and sandwiches at Rembrandt’s Coffee House. Spend an hour, an afternoon or an entire day discovering all there is to do in Bluff View Art District.
