We visited the Great Smoky arts District stretch on Glades road, seeing many of the craft and art studios and they were amazing 👍 Well worth a visit😀 We found a wonderful little ice cream parlour and had the best milkshakes 😋 ever!!! Glades soda fountain. Would definitely visit this area again. Wayne and Shelly 🇬🇧
I enjoy finding souvenirs for friends and family (and myself) from local makers. It may cost a little more than a trinket you find on the main strip down in Pigeon Forge but it's definitely worth while to spend some time visiting with store owners and browsing their shops. I only spent a few hours shopping and barely put a dent in the number of shops visited. I highly recommend the Community.
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 absolutely one of my favorite places to visit in the Smoky Mountains. The shops sell quality handmade goods, and the owners are so hospitable. Don’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.
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.
