Your guide to Cherokee

All About Cherokee

Cherokee, North Carolina, got its name from the Cherokee people, who have been the custodians of this rugged, misty mountainscape for centuries. In the summer, you can experience living Cherokee history at evening bonfires with Cherokee elders or at Unto These Hills outdoor performances. A visit here is as much about immersing yourself in Cherokee culture and traditions as it is about hiking the peak of the Great Smoky Mountains or the Appalachian Mountains, seeing the rush of the Soco waterfalls, and spotting wildlife like elk and bears in their natural habitats. In Cherokee, you can also walk in the outsized footsteps of Jadahula the giant, who, according to local legend, used the Smokies as his playground.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cherokee?

The most popular time to visit Cherokee is in October, when the leaves change colors, painting the Smoky Mountain scenery in shades of rust, bronze, and gold. The crisp but sunny weather is perfect for hiking, rafting, and enjoying the outdoors. In winter, expect snow and chillier temperatures perfect for snuggling up in a cozy cabin in Cherokee. In March, foodies flock into town for the Rainbows and Ramps festival, which celebrates the local delicacies of rainbow trout and wild ramps (a type of wild baby leek). The forest fields come alive with blooming wildflowers in March and April, and though there will be rainy days, the weather is mild and the town will be quieter. June through August is when the sun shines in Cherokee, and the hot weather makes this a great time for watersports, swimming in the rivers, and enjoying the outdoors. Come in the summer for special events like Cherokee Bonfire storytelling, watch an Unto These Hills outdoor drama, attend a blueberry festival, and more.


What are the top things to do in Cherokee?

Ziplining

Nantahala Gorge boasts 11 different zip line sections, spread over 20 acres of rugged mountains and forests. The three-hour zipline journey will take you across hanging bridges, over treetops, and up and down craggy cliff sides as you experience the park from a bird's eye view.

Oconaluftee River

There are no shortage of scenic hiking and rafting opportunities along the Oconaluftee River, but there’s a rope swing spot that is particularly beloved by local families. Tube down the river to Piney Grove Beach to find it, or ask a local for driving directions to this off-the-beaten-path swimming hole.

Qualla Arts and Crafts market

Visit the oldest Native American art cooperative in the United States, which showcases the handicrafts of more than 250 Cherokee artists. This is known as the place to go for intricate woven baskets, fine beaded jewelry, hand-thrown pottery, and beautiful wood and stone sculptures.
