Amazed by the talents of the people of the Smoky Mountains. You must be willing to do the 8 mile drive with many stops and starts and taking your chances getting on and off the road but it is well worth it.

Have a day free be sure to do the Arts and Crafts Loop. Alewine Pottery is a must stop. My wife enjoys the quilt shop and I get an old fashion rootbeer float at the soda fountain while waiting. Take your time and enjoy.

If traveling to Gatlinburg, definitely set aside a day or two to see all the local craftsmen and artists. These are people with true talent, and they depend on visitors to make a living. I have been to several shops, and I even purchase unique things that I see. These people are truly amazing.

Drive through the community and stop at your favorite craft store, or stop at all the nice shops. The people are friendly and will explain all of their crafts.
