One of the best places to walk and look in Chattanooga. Overlooking the gorgeous Tennessee River, the Bluff View Art District is home to shops, restaurants as well as the architectural stunner Hunter Museum of American Art. Don't miss it!

I love this section of Chattanooga - makes me feel like I'm in Europe. The Back Inn Cafe' and Rembrandt's is worth the trip. There is also a bakery and Italian Restaurant.

Kind of exotic "European" climate (just streets are wider and buildings younger) a few minutes walk from the city center. A must see - quiet place with nice pieces of architecture. Good alternative to more noisy Aquarium area.
