It is all decked out during the holidays complete with Santa and Mrs Clause (and no line like at the malls). We took Christmas card pictures under the Giant Christmas tree. And a wonderful amenity is the giant firepits they have through out the village to warm up while you are browsing.

We loved walking around all the shops, checking out shops on Village and Pine Knot, as well as being able to see the water from the lake at the end of Pine Knot. We went the day they had their Christmas tree lighting and Santa visit right after Thanksgiving, which made it extra festive. (However, this place needs a lot... More

Good for walking around and light shopping. We drove through on a nice crisp fall day and ate at one of the local restaurants.

Loved the flowers and the fire pits to cuddle and stay warm by. Loved the many lights and and benches to rest on outside many shops. This is a couple of hours to relax and buy gifts for yourself or others.

Didn't really find anything of interest to me but if you like shopping for t-shirts and tchotchkes and consider grazing burgers or BBQ from one place and ice cream or candy from another to be entertainment, this may be for you. It's hard to believe there are only a couple of restaurants with any view. Most of the outdoor seating... More

We like the expanded village. I can't say we bought very much, but it wasn't for lack of trying. We just couldn't find what we were looking for. That said, it's always fun to browse.

Nice flowers and interesting shops, but only spent 5 minutes looking around. Lady in the Visitor centre was very helpful printing out coupons for us.
