Cute place to walk through. Coffee shops, candles, kids stores, candy shops. Not a destination stop for us but it's a pretty little area. Reminds me a little of a little sight in Tuscany.

Cute little storefronts and section to walk through. A nice change of scenery from the strip. We bought some frog Jam from a cute little place , and let your nose lead you to the coffee shop in the back left... Yum!

The Village Shops are to a certain degree a little hidden Gem. Lover this "off the beaten path" area. They are just off the main "drag" downtown, and have several unique shops and restaurants. The street are cobblestone and it is set in a sort of turn of the century village. Very Quaint and calming, definitely a welcome retreat from... More

I Love the socks store- an entire shop with tons of awesome socks. They also have a Tervis tumbler store, a Life is Good store, and multiple sweets shops.

My husband and I love this area. The shops are adorable and every shop keeper was very sweet even if you didn't purchase anything. They have a pretty fountain with seating as well as small iron tables perfect for eating lunch. I enjoy this area so much every time I come to Gatlinburg!!!

There isn't much in here aside from the tervis store. The area is very pretty but that's about it. It seems everytime we go here the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting and no cleaning staff on site

Cute shops, there wasn't much there I was looking for but seemed like nice upscale shops from the over populated t-shirt shops all over the strip.

Some really neat shops and restaurants with a very different feel that the rest of the town. Nice German Restaurant, make sure you try a donut at the Donut Friar - they really are that good - and swing by the Day Hiker if you need anything before you head into the Smoky's!
