Cherokee

Trails of Legends and Adventures

The center of Cherokee culture in the eastern part of the country, the town named after this Native American tribe serves as a base camp for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains. Located within a Cherokee reservation, the town depends almost exclusively on tourism--nearly two-thirds of its revenue is derived from this industry. Cherokee lacks a clearly defined downtown area, but its commercial section is almost entirely composed of hotels and shops, most of which sell Native American souvenirs. The city of about 25,000 is only reachable by mountain roads, most easily accessible from Knoxville or Asheville. Cherokee is in North Carolina Mountains.
