It would be a shame to visit Cherokee and not spend time in the Smoky Mountains National Park. Home to some of the oldest mountains in the world, you can do everything from hiking to fishing. Alternatively, opt for a scenic drive. If you plan on visiting the park, you will want to stay near the Oconaluftee Visitor Center. The center itself is near the Mountain Farm Museum and, of course, acts as a gateway to many of the different activities you can do.

Then, stop by the Cherokee Indian Fair Grounds and enjoy any of its year-round programs. If you visit during the warmer months, then do not miss Oconaluftee Island Park and its beautiful bamboo forest.
