It was a really cold day, but we still really enjoyed walking around the area. There are places to eat, get coffee, art displays. We didn't go inside the art museum, stayed outdoors. Walking bridges led to river area and Aquarium. Plan on returning on a beautiful sunny day!

We walked from the convention center area to Bluff View Art District. This is a very hilly walk. Great exercise but well worth the walk! Beautiful area and be sure to see all the art works & restaurants.

This is a lovely area of Chattanooga. We parked the car and walked along the sculpture park and then over to the Hunter Art Museum. Beautiful views of the river from up here. There are also many cute shops , cafes and restaurants.

This area offers a beautiful vista of the Tennessee River with a wonderful museum, fabulous restaurants and quaint inns/hotels. You can walk the bridge to the north side of the river from here too. Highly recommend Rembrandt's in this area for great coffee, soups, sandwiches and sweets!

You CAN have it all! Relax, enjoy and entertain young adults also. Love love love this place with all its charm and amenities. Perfect location. Once when kid was at orientation I even lucked out and could hear the music from a festival while rocking out on the front porch enjoying an iced coffee and macaroon!

Thank Nancy B
