    Cherokee is approximately 30 miles from Gatlinburg but the drive to get there is absolutely amazing. It is a Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful scenic drive through the Smoky National Forest via New Found Gap Road. Once there, Cherokee offers tubing in the summer and a casino year round. There is a quaint downtown that offers all types of shops. The ancestral homeland of the Cherokee Indians offers natural beauty, family attractions, outdoor activities, and the rich history of the Great Smoky Mountains.

    Discover the Cherokee Indians by visiting the Museum or going to the Live Outdoor Show "Unto These Hills" in the summer evenings. Go to the Oconaloftee Visitor Center to see how settlers lived at the entrance of the Parkway.
    If you gamble or like to eat, visit Harrah's Casino.

    Cherokee North Carolina is on the Cherokee Indian reservation and is the southern gateway to both The Great Smokey's Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can spend a whole day and see only a fracture of what this community can offer.

    http://visitcherokeenc.com/ ~ Cherokee is a town just outside the park that is run and governed solely by Cherokee indians. They have many native american gift and craft shops. a Harrah's casino, and a Cherokee museum. I highly recommend this tour. (per google maps 1 hour 18 minutes away)

    This is the greatest place to spend the day. In the summer months they have warriors on the tourist street to teach the kids about some of the Indian dances, and in the evenings you can go to the amphitheater to hear the story of the trail of tears. It's a wonderful place to spend time.

    Cherokee is about 1/2 hour driving time from our cabin. There is a great outdoor theater that gives the history of the Cherokee Indians. There is also a nice Casino to win some money!

    First to Review

    Some of the best sights must be searched for.The "in your face" garishness is a little over the top. Once you get past the touristy bits this is a very interesting area. The street names in the native language and all of the artwork around the city made a whole different sort of "scavenger hunt". Sighted my first woodchuck roadside up an embankment in the vines. Look along the river bank on your way in or out of the area, they use some very different forms of erosion control.
