Very few shops here. It’s mostly an empty complex with apartments on the 2nd floor and shops on the 1st floor. But this cute little covered bridge was a treat to see.

´Tis a grand day. Covered Bridge in the Glades is a "fairly recent" addition, and the Covered Bridge in the Glade is a functional one-way bridge. The Covered Bridge in the Glade is actually part of a Mixed residential and commercial community, and we recommend...More

Nice little covered bridge that leads to shops in Gatlinburg. This is a pretty place for a photo op. There are a few quaint shops and eateries close by.
