I love the atmosphere here at The Village. From the shops, to people watching, to the sounds. I would recommend buying a donut , from the Donut Friar, the sit and enjoy.

This is a tourist area of course but my husband and I always try to get to the Village Shops when we come into the area. We were in the Pigeon Forge area this time for Rod Run but decided to break away from all the madness and go to the Gatlinburg area and of course we hit the Village... More

It was a beautiful day and we love coming to this little strip within the strip. The service in all the stores seems to be above average. Expect tourism pricing, but great selection. We bought a few things I have not seen in other retail stores.

My best ever were a pair of Ariat shoes and I had seen them in the news paper at our local shopping mall and did not want to pay the high price...so I stopped in the Hayloft... More

I'm glad we got to walk around here. Although it is very touristy, you are still able to find many unique items, and handmade too. The Donut Friar was delish, and so was the Pancake Pantry. Loved the pottery store and the atmosphere was inviting and everyone was friendly. Take the time and stroll around!

I agree with the other reviewers about the quaint shops and relative calm of the Village Shops, a nice breather from the bustle of the main drag. I visited the Sock Shop twice - finally a place where I could get some useful AND cute souvenirs, in the form of "World's Softest" socks with little black bears on them. They... More

This area is very nice. There's a little bit of everything for everyone, from ice cream and coffee to shoes and art.

I love it. It was like we stepped into a ripple in time. The had old pottery shops where you could watch them at work. Soap shops, a doughnut shop, purses and many other things. They even have a place for public restrooms which I thought was very nice and clean.

I really enjoyed these shops! I like how it was off the main street, since this is a tourist area you have people Standing outside of there shops wanting to talk and sell you stuff! These village shops are quiet and no ones pressuring you to come in!!

This is such a cute shopping area! The shops are all fun and getting off the main road is nice. We were there on a Friday and traffic was light. We drove by it on Saturday and it was packed! I am glad we went on Friday. There is a spice shop in the back corner that was my favorite.... More
