The shops there are great and have something for just about everybody. There are multiple areas of shops that are close together and very nice. They also have places to get a light meal and a great old fashioned soda shop in one of the areas.

Not too far from Gatlinburg. Winding road thru a beautiful area in Sevier County. If you like arts and crafts, this is a good place to visit.

Actually, "crafts" is a mis-nomer, if most of what we saw was not museum quality, it was very close. Beautifully executed art of various types. A must see for those looking for quality work.

The artisan loop / community here has many wonderful craftspeople and galleries. We particularly like Alewine Pottery but have gotten beautiful pieces at many places. A must see in this area if you enjoy arts and crafts

We made the mistake of taking the trolley to the Arts and Crafts community and we went late in the day. We will plan a day there next time we visit Gatlinburg.
