    We visited the Great Smoky arts District stretch on Glades road, seeing many of the craft and art studios and they were amazing ๐Ÿ‘ Well worth a visit๐Ÿ˜€ We found a wonderful little ice cream parlour and had the best milkshakes ๐Ÿ˜‹ ever!!! Glades soda fountain. Would definitely visit this area again. Wayne and Shelly ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

    A pleasant diversion from the crowds of tourists in downtown Gatlinburg. I saw several craftsman working hard today. A real pleasure for a returning vacationer. I enjoyed the history of several buildings that were moved to create this TREASURE. I highly recommend that you find this place. Visits like these makes me want to return.

    This area is absolutely one of my favorite places to visit in the Smoky Mountains. The shops sell quality handmade goods, and the owners are so hospitable. Donโ€™t buy from tourist trap shops! Come here and support real, local artisans. You could visit this area ten times and still want to come back.

    This is a great strip to visit if you want to find unique stuff. There are clusters of artist shops along the 8 miles. Make sure to grab a map at one of the locations for up to date Info as a lot of these places aren't listed on Google maps and hours of operation vary from Google maps too.

    This area is a must see if you plan on coming to the Smokies. Shop local and bring home a unique souvenir from your trip! Over 100 different shops to see over an 8 mile loop. There's also several different restaurants to choose from when it's time for a break. Just make sure to check their hours before making plans, since some of them aren't open all or every day. Please observe the posted speed limit of 25mph on this loop, as there are a lot of sharp curves & people pulling out of places, as well as a few crosswalks, where pedestrians have the right of way. And you never know when a bear or turkey may decide to cross the road in front of you.
