Located in the Great Smoky Mountains, Cherokee offers rich Native American history and culture.
In addition to spectacular views, shopping, and cultural attractions, Cherokee is home to Harrah’s Casino Resort. With 150,000 feet of gaming, the Mandara Spa, and shows by big names like Lady Antebellum, Alicia Keys, and Blake Shelton, there’s plenty to keep you entertained!
Serving as the gateway to both the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee offers a variety of activities for visitors from history to golf to gambling. History buffs will enjoy learning about the Cherokee culture, while golfers can hit the links at Sequoyah National Golf Club and gamblers can try their luck at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort. Cherokee sponsors the springtime Ramps and Rainbows Festival, which allows visitors, especially children, to catch trout in the Oconaluftee River and sample ramps, a traditional Appalachian delicacy.
