Neat spin on old Europe village. Shops within were great. Good blend on novelty shops, artists and food. Grounds were very clean and welcoming.

This is one of the most picturesque shopping areas I've ever been to. Wide variety of shops. The Donut Friar is a must for a snack. The Ole Smokey Candy Kitchen has the best candy in Gatlinburg.

One of our favorite places to shop while visiting Gatlinburg. This stop was meant for the Tervis store. We picked up exactly what we wanted and picked up some great gifts for our kids for Christmas. The staff was so nice and helpful.

Cute little "village" with specialty shops and a nice fountain in the center. One of the Ole smoky candy shops is in here. We enjoyed it and even came back on Halloween for trick or treating.

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