We often drive around and through the "Glade" to stop and watch a pottery wheel creating something unique and cherished by its creator and its new owner. We walk through small galleries where artists paint and sculpt. Recently we gave two of our heroic fire fighters paintings by Iva Prince, the "Grandmama Moses of the Smokies." Its a place you...

This is where many of the amazing original artists that were in downtown Gatlinburg have moved to! Grab a map, choose your 'must-see's and enjoy a day or three along this route! Beautiful artistry and lovely people. SO worth your time vs the tourist junk in town. A MUST DO!

So many people do not take the time to enjoy the lovely Arts & Crafts community just outside of the center of Gatlinburg. There are some terrific artists in this area, and you will be surprised at the quality of some of the pieces. You should definitely set aside a few hours to explore this area.

My joy, many years ago, was a trip to stay in the Gatlinburg Inn with my parents and to wander the streets where artisans made and sold their wares. Commercialization moved in and the artisans regrouped in this community. Now, my children and I love to visit this area...there is something for everyone!!! We start with a leather belt for... More

I think this area is the most convenient-you can quickly & easily get to attractions in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge---turn at traffic light #3 & all of the traffic seems to disappear. There is so much to see & do- a MUST area to visit!!
