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.

This was a nice little area to visit. Not far from Gatlinburg, however, it nerds advertising. We only knew about it by finding it on travel advisor. Loved the quaint little shops, the covered bridge and it was the cleanest shopping area around. We will...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.

This place looks like it would be a nice place to stop but there is not alot to look at. Hopefully over time they can bring more shops in. Would hate to see it end up like other areas just sitting empty.
