We stumbled onto the Village Shops by accident, in our attempt to go into almost every interesting shop, and we were not disappointed. The streets were far less crowded than on the main stretch, and not only that, they were wonderful stores! The view around them is really great, there is a beautiful fountain, and several fun and unique stores..... More

This is a great place to browse around and shop. There are so many different things to look at and enjoy. I always like to go in the Celtic shop where they have kilts and sweaters. I also like to watch the candy being made when you first enter the area.

Absolutely, loved the atmosphere of the Village Shops. Have traveled to the Smoky Mountains many times thru the years and always enjoy the stroll around the Village. The decorations are so awesome in the autumn and the smell of the nearby mountain is none that can be explained. Makes a wonderful back drop for photos.

i love so many shops in here i can't even list them all and the water fountain is beautiful, especially in the winter when it's half frozen. The variety here is wonderful and there is a shop for everyone.

There are several nifty shops to visit. We love taking an evening walk and browsing the different shops with the kids. Lots of fun stuff and a few coffee and snack shops.

We entered many of the little shops but we have two favorites the candy kitchen and Li olive, the first week self explanatory chocolate made in store yummy. The second Li olive was a local owned store and locally made product of olive oils and vingerettes. The owner got us to taste many different types and enjoyed, purchased many styles.... More

I love walking around the Village Shops in Gatlinburg. My favorites include the Silver Tree which offers unique sterling silver jewelry, the Donut Friar & Life is Good. There is a sitting area with a fountain surrounded by the 22 shops. The girls in your group will really enjoy.

We stop in the Village several times throughout our vacation in the Smokies each year! We will often cut through the Village via Primrose walk to get from the Parkway to our condo/hotel on Bishop Lane. The atmosphere in the Village is so charming. You just feel like you stepped back in time when you step into the Village. It... More
