Shi-yo and welcome to beautiful Cherokee, North Carolina, gateway to both the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We invite you to enjoy the many fun and relaxing things to do such as the Oconaluftee Indian Village, “Unto These Hills” Outdoor Drama, Museum of the Cherokee Indians and Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual. Take a swing at our new golf course Sequoyah National Golf Club or try your luck at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Hotel. Bring the family and get back to nature with the best swimming, fishing and tubing river in the southeastern United States. One visit and you’ll see why Cherokee is more than just a visit!
