My husband and I stopped here and had fun browsing the shops. Next to the leather shop is a nice little coffee shop and the lady there was very sweet and made a wonderful Frappuccino.

A good amount of shops to explore, and a good selection of local crafts. It is worth a stop if you are already planning a trip to Cherokee,

Interesting little shops, arcade and places to get a quick bite to eat. Very scenic and you can soak up the mountain air while you wander. It is touristy but that is not a bad thing. It is well worth the stop.

We always love going here to buys souvenirs. You can find some reasonable prices. We like buying locally made things. It is neat getting pics with the Indians in full dress.

This is a total tourist trap. Which I expected and we went there specifically for souvenirs, but the "Native Americans" walking around were nothing short of beggars and they made me really uncomfortable. The whole area was in disrepair. And most of the shops were way overpriced.

There were great shops to visit. Tribal Elders were there to talk to. We had a blast at the Bull Riding area. The ice cream at Carolina Coneys was delicious.

We where on our way thru to gatlinburg via the Great Smoky Mountains trail. We decided to visit the local shops. Found an authentic signed clay stature in one of the shops. All the local store owners where easy to deal with. Clean cheerful stop
