The village shops are located in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg. It's a quaint little setup like a small village. We didn't buy anything while there, but it's definitely worth the walk through. It's a nice place to sit and people watch while having a cup of coffee. They have some random shops that aren't found many places. We enjoy... More

This was a pretty little village we stumbled upon that was decorated for Fall. We loved walking around in and out of the stores and eating treats. We took lots of pictures outside. We hope to visit again this year!

You meander through brick lined walk-ways with candy, clothing, jewelry, hot sauce, and food shops lining both sides. Some unusual items both mostly the same thing lining the main boulevard. I bought some salsa. That's about it.

The village is a quaint and beautiful area of small shops, picture perfect fountains, and delicious donuts! When walking around it reminds me of the Gatlinburg of old without the moonshine places and t shirt shops every 10 feet. They also have public restrooms which are a bonus. Make sure you stop and get an eclair from the donut friar.... More

The Village Shops is a cluster of shops that offer a wide variety of services in an environment that sets it apart because it feels and looks like a small European village with the ambiance and charm that comes with that type of community. Set back from the main street it evokes memories of a bygone era.

Interesting little shop group setup like a small village. I didn't really find anything interesting but don't let that stop you from checking it out yourself. Easily accessed by foot traffic as there is no dedicated street access for cars or any parking for it specifically. Park the car in a car park and go for a stroll.

We wanted to do some shopping; fudge, t-shirts, etc. I chose the village shops because the collection of stores are in a closed in area with little courtyards, good for small children who will inevitably run wild. No worrying about traffic, noise or even too much sun. We parked at a lot close by and walked down. Found pretty much... More

Okay I love to shop but holy mother this area is so over crowded. We had trouble parking and there were just too many people. Go prepared if you are familiar with Myrtle Beach, it's like the strip at night times 10 as far as crowds are concerned. I had a hard time enjoying it. I preferred Pigeon Forge it's... More

Cute little shops to visit and look around in. Unique gifts and trinkets. Bought some taffy and truffles from the candy shop right as you walk in. Everything was delicious.

I have been to Gatlinburg a couple times and each time I was pleased and surprised how nice these shops are made. They made this area so nice and neat where you can feel like you are in some sort of story book. These shops are so cute that they are great photo spots. It is very refreshing to walk... More
