The Village is one of my favorite places in Gatlinburg. There are many quaint shops and cool places to take pictures. We love the Donut Friar. It is amazing to walk down in the mornings grab some donuts and coffee and sit by the fountain and eat. There is also a great candy store where you can watch the confectioners... More

Following the horrific fires, a lot of us have ventured to Gatlinburg to try to help the local economy.

Beautiful scenery during the holidays. Shops are great and vary. Well worth the trip to see. In fact, all of Gatlinburg is beautiful during the holiday season!

The Donut Friar is here! This is a small beautiful place off the main street of Gatlinburg. A must place to walk thru to take pictures and see the flowers. There seems to always be flowers in this area. The lights and decorations are always beautiful. It is a place to unwind and sit down away form the crowds. You... More

A set of charming shoppes with a nostalgic feel. I have visited the area several times over the years and I have to make a stop each time. Each store offers something truly unique.

We visited for our anniversary, and to get some gifts for the holidays. There are many shops in downtown Gatlinburg, and many are open (but some look like they've closed for the season). The downtown strip has not been affected by the recent wildfires, and welcome the chance to do business.
