Cherokee

The nation’s most-visited national park – Great Smoky Mountains (www.nps.gov/grsm) – and Eastern America’s largest Indian reservation, are just a few of the most superlative excuses for visiting Cherokee (www.visitcherokeenc.com). There’s nothing more elemental than a walk in the Smokies’ woods, the ancestral home of the Cherokee. If the rich lore and traditions of the tribe are your focus, the town’s museums, outdoor drama, and living history displays offer cultural insight. There’s golf at the tribe’s championship Sequoyah National Golf Club (www.sequoyahnational.com), and entertainment and gaming at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort (www.harrahscherokee.com).
