Grab a fresh brewed coffee and warm doughnut and enjoy people watching!! Shaded area as you move shop for shop.

Everything is good here. Lovely classy shops. Not junky and kitschy. Relaxing places to sit and rewind. A must do place to shop. You won't be disappointed.

We always stop at this shopping center. There are plenty of nice and unique shopping opportunities. Last visit we stopped by the sock store and selection was amazing. Lots of shady spots on a hot day too.

This truly looks like a village...quaint, pretty pastel little shops, set on streets, like a real village. The stores are all unique, filled with quality goods, not cheap tourist souveneers. There are several places to grab a snack or ice cream, with lots of benches, mostly shaded, where you can enjoy yourself, an ice cream and people watch. I really... More

There are quite a few shops in the village and each one is so unique. There is something for everyone. Lots of places for snack and nicknacks. Lots of places to sit and people watch it just relax. Very enjoyable.

Lots of unique shops here. It's like stepping into a European market area. There is a variety of shops and places to get treats.

The donut shop was nice, prices reasonable, and had some delicious options. The ice cream shop gal was very friendly and had lots of choices of flavors. There's a cool hiker's shop to check out as well. Nothing really special, but worth a look if you have time to kill in Gatlinburg

We love the shops at The Village. We always do some shopping and get some candy and just walk around here while in The Smokies.
