So you like to shop and you want to do some shopping on your vacation in Tennessee?  Pigeon Forge is the place to go if you really want a large number of stores.  Don’t get me wrong, Gatlinburg has plenty of shopping as well, but the stores are more limited since they are mostly in the 1 mile that is downtown Gatlinburg.

Gatlinburg has smaller stores and it’s best to park your car behind the main drag or in a lot and walk the sidewalks going in and out of the specialty stores.  Lots of fudge and candy stores.  There’s also a McDonald’s, Bubba Gumps, KFC, and Walgreens on the main drag, so you’ll have some mainstream stores and familiar restaurants to suit your taste.  I hear the Outpost close to stop light 10 is a really great store for outdoor gear, we haven’t been there yet.

Pigeon Forge is a whole other story, on the main drag you’ll find one store after another.  A lot of them are even repeats of stores found a few blocks away.  There is a whole shopping center just for Christmas, and you can do lunch there as well.  For those of you who are die-hard designer shoppers you’ll find plenty to buy at the Tanger Outlets just north of Pigeon Forge in Sevierville.

Happy shopping!
