I always enjoy walking around The Village. It is very charming with the Alpine architecture and cobblestone walkways. The seasonal decorations are always pretty. Even if you are not in the buying mood it is a nice place to meander.

It had been 20 something years since I had been here, I was excited to take my husband and son. We enjoyed the shops and different finds in the shops. Would love to visit during Christmas one year.

We usually stop here while in Gatlinburg. Many shops were closed this time so we were disappointed. We did get a couple pair of boots at the boot store.

Visit Donut Friar for a snack. Worth 45 minutes of walking. On the Parkway. See the taffy production. Has a water fountain to take a picture.
