While shopping may not be the first thing you think of when planning your trip to Gatlinburg, it certainly shouldn’t be the last! For those that have experienced the specialty shops galore, they know there’s no better place to browse, buy gifts, or even just treat yourself.
Gatlinburg is well-known for its Arts and Crafts Community, an enclave of over 100 local artisans along an 8-mile loop road. This famous community is the largest independent organization of artisans in the United States! Here you can find one-of-a-kind handcrafted items from pottery to watercolors, to soaps, and weavings. All you have to do is grab the trolley and make your way to see some priceless items!
For those shoppers that want a lot of variety in one place, Gatlinburg Mountain Mall is your stop. The mall boasts 6 floors of shops, each with their own unique theme: homemade candles, locally sourced jewelry, gourmet hot sauce, salsas, and marinades to name a few!
Finally, visitors would be remiss to not explore the unique shopping experience at The Village, located in the heart of Gatlinburg. Beautiful architecture and landscaping are combined with 27 unique boutiques, eateries, and galleries that make you think you stepped back in time.
After you've shopped 'til you drop, retire to your peaceful Gatlinburg cabin and recharge for the next day's adventures.
