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.
