The Village Shops
I had grown up going to Gatlinburg and spending time in the mountains during the summer with my family, but I had never before had the privilege of seeing the mountains in all their fall glory. What a treat it was and how lucky was I to have the perfect weekend to spend on a mountain top!
This was the traffic we had to contend with just to get into the Smoky Mountains!
A view of the Village Shops and all the people. At the bottom of the mountains the trees were still mainly green, but they were changing up top.
The Hofbrauhous Restaurant is actually on the second floor of the Cheese Cupboard, which would also be a great place to pick up some picnic snacks to take along with you on a hike.
