Many shops, activities and restaurants. Many reasonably priced parking lots throughout the town. Much nicer in my opinion than the overcrowded Pigeon Forge with much less traffic.

This area reminded us of our strolls through EPCOT in Orlando. The area is over-the-top beautiful. The shops are varied. The donuts were tasty.

Wandering through here while in Gatlinburg has become a tradition. I especially like the Sock Shop and Spice and Tea Exchange. The Village is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Parkway and relax for a bit.

The shops are in an Old-World, Bavarian style. It's easy to get around, with plenty of options for sitting (if you need to). The shops are unique & reasonably priced. Visit The Cheese Cupboard, when you are there. You'll find tasty treats to take back...More

Enjoyed walking and shopping here. A very pretty setting to stroll through. All kinds of fun shops, food, clothing, shoes, gifts etc. There are some branded stores like Tervis and Life is Good. I'm glad I walked through here. Will be back.

Have visited the Village Shops numerous times. There are great little shops from hiking supplies to doughnuts. It’s always decorated beautifully no matter the season. We will definitely be back.
