Sugarlands Visitors Center – Great Smoky Mountains National Park
When visiting Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a visit to the Sugarlands Visitors Center is a must. Take time to pick up a brochure pack with guides to multiple areas of the park, watch a free video about the park, check out the museum and browse the gift shop. You’ll find a wide range of regional books, souvenirs, gifts and other items that are sure to bring back great memories of your trip to the Smokies. Profits from your purchase will also help to benefit the Great Smoky Mountains Association. A non-profit organization that provides the park and visitors with support year around.
Sugarland Cellars is a fully-operating winery in Gatlinburg. If you’re looking for a full experience while at the winery, take a tour and enjoy the wine tastings that they offer seven days a week. You’ll also find items in their gift shop that are filled with the charm of the Smoky Mountains. Each bottle of wine is based on the Smokies and has a little bit of mountain magic in every sip. If you’ve ever wanted to take home a Hellbender, a bottle of Elkmont, some Mountain Laurel or a bit of Blackbeary Peach for your next picnic, you’ll want to stop by Sugarland Cellars.
The Appy Lodge
We may be a little bias but we do have to recommend our own gift shop as one of our top places to shop in Gatlinburg! Located in our lobby, our shop may be smaller than some but it’s packed with The Appy, the Appalachian Trail, and love. You’ll find an assortment of gifts to choose from and we’re certain that you’ll find the perfect souvenir to take home. Once your purchase is made, the love is then put into play because a portion of the profits will go to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. The ATC works to preserve and manage the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Here at The Appy Lodge, we are very honored to be able to support their mission.
