Showstreet is at the entrance to Dollywood is the first thing you'll experience when you step foot into the park. Its charming country style and gorgeous umbrella walkway are delightful. The smell of the Spotlight Bakery is bound to draw you in, and the Showstreet Ice Cream shop just across from it is the perfect stop on a hot day. The Front Porch Cafe is also a popular dining location, with excellent meals served in an adorable, casual environment. Since it's also where visitors exit the park, the main souvenir shop, called the Dollywood Emporium, is also located here. It gives you the perfect opportunity to grab something nice to remember your day on your way out.
