True to its name and origins, the city of Cherokee, North Carolina,
is home to numerous Native American-related attractions, but that's
certainly not all the city is known for. Knowledge seekers can
visit the Museum of the Cherokee Indians or the Oconaluftee Indian
The story of how the Cherokee ancestors were
driven out of the Smoky Mountains and forced to march 1,200 miles to
Oklahoma is powerfully retold in the Unto These Hills outdoor drama.
Lighter family fare can be found at the Cherokee Fun Park, which
contains an arcade, go karts, miniature golf, and specialty rides,
and the Cherokee Bear Zoo, which houses a children's petting zoo.
Adults can get out and enjoy the night life at the Harrah's Cherokee
Casino and Hotel.
So whether you're a history buff, a family
looking for adventure, or a couple on a weekend getaway, Cherokee,
North Carolina, has something for you!
