These are a collection of little shops nicely tucked into the landscape. They were enjoyable but small. There was all kinds of stuff. The donut friar smelled delicious. There is something for everyone at the village! highly recommended!

A must-see, in my opinion! Once you take a few steps off the parkway, you would swear you had gone back in time a couple of hundred years. Even though the shops sell mostly present-day items, the building facades are each unique and delightfully old-fashioned. Brick walkways and storefronts could almost make you think you were a character in a... More

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