They have quite a little eclectic selection of different novelty shops and cafes here. My husband and I took a quick little walk through and enjoyed looking at all the little stuff. It's very quaint and much like a little German town near where we live in Michigan. I don't know if anyone here has ever been to Frankenmuth, MI,... More

Love the village shops! Lots of little unique stores and beautifully situated off the street. We always find some new treasures and collectibles.

With awesome little shops & snack places. If you keep walking past the restrooms up the hill is where the old White Oak Flats cemetery is & some of the Ogles graves. Also a great overlooking view.

Although they have a lot of quaint little shops, they are definitely more upscale than the rest of the street. They really do a nice job decorating for each of the seasons. Its really a nice romantic place to walk around and window shop.

Liked seeing the crafts that people were selling. However, it did seem to be repetitive and we gave up half way through. I felt that I could find many of those items at Cracker Barrel. A few of the shops actually had the artists working and I found those conversations interesting. Note, this is stretched out in clusters so walking... More

Great little shops, we enjoyed walking thru them. Not much to choose from, but they look like you went back in time to medieval times

We love stopping here everytime we are in the area.. First of all, it has some of the cleanest bathrooms in Gatlinburg (they are in the back of the village) but it also has the best variety of shops! It offers everything from camping and hiking gear, Life is Good, Tervis, and lots of other shops! We always leave with... More

This is my favorite area on the parkway. It's always decorated beautifully for the holidays. I miss some of the older, quaint ships, but still a favorite.
