The Village Shops was one of several quaint off-street collections of boutiques in Gatlinburg. There’s no shortage of opportunities to shop till ya’ drop in this town. It took my wife and I six hours to transverse all the shops, restaurants, galleries and attractions along the main street in Gatlinburg, and The Village Shops was a favorite.

This little area called the Village was my favorite shopping area. Very cute and it is also the home of the Donut Friar:-)

This is by far the best and nicest location on the parkway. You can shop, have coffee or simply side in the garden/fountain area.

I love this cute little area, there are shops for everything! It's all cobble stones and it's just beautiful to walk threw. A must go to on your walk down the strip!

The Village has a unique and diverse selection of shops. Everything from candles to socks, from personalized keepsakes to paintings, The Village has more to offer in its shops than the rest of the Gatlinburg strip put together. My favorite shops are U Name It (which offers personalized items) and The Silver Tree (which offers beautiful silver jewelry). Take some... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the great selection of specialty shops in this very pleasant shopping area off the craziness & cheesiness of the main parkway. We normally aren't interested in wasting our precious vacation time shopping (and spending more $$!), but spent a couple hours browsing several of the shops as they had items that are difficult to find...

THIS is the small village area I wish all of Gatlinburg was like. It is awesome back here - and the Donut Friar has great donuts. This place looks even better at night....
