Arts, Crafts, Galleries

Updated 2022: Nothing says Gatlinburg like Appalachian culture and love for its traditions, and the place to find them in abundance is in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. There are over 100 shops and studios for you to discover along the 8-mile loop that has been designated a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail.
