Cherokee

The center of Cherokee culture in the eastern part of the country, the town named after this Native American tribe serves as a base camp for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cherokee: Highlands (Colonel Mustard’s, Bridal Veil Falls, &more) and Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum (in Maggie Valley). And it doesn't end there: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take in the exciting artwork at Pincu Pottery, take in the dramatic scenery at Mingo Falls, and try your luck at Casino at Harrah’s Cherokee.
