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.
Appreciate the collections at Wheels Through Time Transportation Museum and Mountain Farm Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Clingmans Dome and River Rafting & Tubing. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cherokee: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Mount LeConte, Foothills Parkway Southwest Parking, &more), Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel (in Walhalla) and Bootleggers Distillery (in Hartford). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Cradle of Forestry, admire the sheer force of Dry Falls, admire all the interesting features of Newfound Gap Road, and try your luck at Casino at Harrah’s Cherokee.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Cherokee itinerary planner.

In May, daytime highs in Cherokee are 75°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
