There are great shops and restaurants here all together, so you can just park your car and walk to all of them. Bathrooms are in between some of the shops also so that makes it convenient. Puppy , clothing , candy, souvenir shops, just about anything you could want.

All kinds of shops with plenty of things to spend your money on. Always on the list of things to do when we go to Gatlinburg. I like it better in the evening. Tends to not be as hot, and there are often performers hired by the city (?) or maybe the center (?) playing instruments and/or singing. A pretty... More

We absolutely love this. We were on our honey moon and walked through Gatlinburg. The shops were so sweet and charming. Everyone is so nice too.

These shops are very cute. If you are walking around Gatlinburg, I would recommend stopping in these shops. Something for everyone. We were going to stop at the Donut Friar but the line was too long.

Was such a nice experience. A friend had told me to visit The Village. We had such a good time looking around.

´Tis a grand day. Sevier County and the GSMNP is a unique shopping and area of natural beauty, which attracts over 10,000,000 visitors annually. Most of these folks enjoy Gatlinburg. The Village Shops is a prime exemplary shopping area. We do not mind paying a parking fee; however, we know that the use of credit cards to gain entrance to... More

This is a very pretty area in Gatlinburg. It looks, like the name implies, a village. It has a nice fountain and sitting area in the center. Variety of shops and places to get a donut, candy or a drink.

Pleasantly surprised by the variety of shops located in the Village. We enjoyed a donut at the Donut Friar (excellent!), and walked through many of the other interesting shops. There are a lot of benches and tables to sit and rest. We took our dogs with us. Very pet friendly. Lots of places to find interesting gifts.

It's like walking through an European Village with quaint shops you can walk-in and meet friendly merchants who are willing to help and assist and the wonderful aroma of fresh brewed coffee and pastry from the Donut Friar himself. From boutiques, to candles, to eateries to art galleries, The Village has a little bit of delight in every step you... More

The Village Shops are a great little place right off the main strip. From candy to socks, t-shirts to coffee, the Shops have a little bit of everything. Relaxed, fun atmosphere, that provides a nice diversion to the hustle and bustle of the street shops. I'm not saying it can't get crowded...this is Gatlinburg...it just doesn't seem that bad. Coffee... More
