  • We had the best time. We have always wanted to go. Took the tour of the village and the staff was so amazing. Our tour guide was beautiful and so knowledgeable. The older Native American gentleman who was make flint rock knives and arrow heads was an American treasure. I loved seeing the young people who worked there being emerged in there culture. They put on a small game for us. I was so impressed with the staff in the shop also. Me and my mom looked up her lineage and the lady was so nice. This is one of the best vacation places I have ever been to. The history here is something I will never forget. Thank you Cherokee Heritage Center for existing.
