Various Photos of Gatlinburg Tennessee

The main drag in Gatlinburg is so colorful.  I know some people hate it and its disruption of the otherwise green and tranquil Smoky Mountain area.  I have always appreciated its cheesiness.

I look forward to many more trips to Gatlinburg, and I think I will always look forward to a candy break at Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen, hanging out at Cooter's Place and a chance to explore the weird little shops here and there.  BUT, we are spending a lot less time in this area with each visit.
This first time you visit, you are overwhelmed.  You have to visit each shop, and you take your time.  The next time around, you still want to hit some of the places you missed before...  after awhile you learn to avoid the time share people...  anyway, on this trip we made a quick run through the area.

We noticed that a nice little sandwich shop we went to last time is now a candle place.  We were totally confused about which Moonshine places have come, gone, and moved.

We were really happy to notice lots of people coming and going from Cooter's.  There is something so nostalgic and comfortable about going there.  I grew up on the show and still love the Dukes.  I really respect what Ben Jones has done with these great shops.

Anyway, check out these random photos!
