Brands That Will Surprise and Delight You: Shopping Adventures at Riverside Trading Post

When arriving at Dollywood Splash Country most folks make a beeline for the nearest body of water so that a day of fun in the sun can begin. But don’t overlook Riverside Trading Post, a very well-appointed gift shop near the entrance to the park that carries useful products you need and several brands you are really going to love, all in one convenient location.

The first thing I spotted when checking things out was one of the best selections of swimsuit cover-ups I have yet to find in any store (including online!). Some are inside the shop, and some are just outside of it, under cute umbrella coverings. The price points are great and the styles are so on trend.

I also noticed that this shop carries looks by Simply Southern. You’ll find a nice selection of cute tops and hats with fun graphics and uplifting messages that are great to wear anywhere and everywhere. It’s so fun to find boutique brands like this at Dollywood’s Splash Country.

My husband found a pair of Teva sandals he wanted, and I spotted a Kavu bag in a pattern that was made just for me (though it was tough to choose just one, as the shop had more than 20 different patterns in stock). In addition, I spotted a great selection of things you might have forgotten to pack but can certainly need to use in the park such as sunscreen, water shoes, goggles, and even swimsuits.

Riverside Trading Post also has an impressive selection of children’s plush toys and other fun activities for the car ride back home. If you like to pick up a souvenir for your little swimmer, this is the spot to look before the sun sets on your day’s adventures. Do not make the mistake of missing out of all the great brands and fashion-forward styles waiting for you at this shop.

Insider Tip

You can get the best selection and the lowest crowds in the shop in the first part of the day before it fills with shoppers stopping by on their way out of the park.
