Just a cute quaint place to shop around. We walked through here and stopped in the candy shop and got some goodies. Will definitely return.

The Village Shops are located in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee. From The Donut Fryar, to local shoe stores, it's a great destination. Cobble stone walkways, fountains, and storefronts make for nice photo opportunities.

Good variety of stores from a hiking store to the Celtic store. It's fun and nicely decorated. You can find good oils and vinegars or teas or art. It's fun to stop in.

Located on the Gatlinburg Parkway. 25 shops. Upscale and worth the time. Maybe one hour. Tourist attraction and very clean bathrooms at the top of the hill. Try the Donut Friar and the spice store and the candy store.

This is a cute little shipping area. Very unique shops. I went into a candle shop and find some really inexpensive candles. It was owned by two gentleman, I can't recall the name of it. Great area to just stroll around.

Small quaint shopping village with a wide variety of stores. Really pretty. Would have enjoyed it more if it wasn’t so crowded and if they had more restroom facilities.

Dog friendly outside area of the shops, but shops are on the small side, not much room to take dog inside.
