    Cherokee—vacation heaven in any language

    Cherokee’s highly valued heritage is immediately apparent from the moment you hit the city limits. The bilingual street signs offer a strong clue to its identity as the headquarters for the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation. Nestled amid the stunning natural beauty of the Oconaluftee River Valley, the town is a beguiling combination of living history and modern amenities. Cherokee vacation rentals also make a convenient base for exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park via the popular scenic route of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    Getting to know your Cherokee hosts

    There are many ways to discover more about your hospitable hosts, from walking tours of downtown to cultural events. The whole family will love spending time in the Oconaluftee Indian Village, where interactive exhibits transport you back to the 1760s. Guided tours offer an informative introduction to the Cherokee way of life, with an opportunity to watch traditional dancing and craft demonstrations and visit the area’s sacred sites. The Indian Village is open from mid-April to mid-November, every day except Sunday. Tickets can be purchased online in advance to save time when you arrive.

    Life in Cherokee past and present

    The benefits of modern life have not bypassed Cherokee. The opening of the casino in 1997 transformed its fortunes, attracting a wider range of visitors and boosting the region’s year-round economy. From amusement parks to zoos, Cherokee has embraced 21st-century tourism with open arms. The Museum of the Cherokee Indian offers a unique insight into the history and heritage of this ancient people, illustrated by interactive videos and full sensory experiences. The Cherokee Botanical Garden and Nature Trail provides a peaceful setting in which to view the indigenous plants of the Great Smoky Mountains, with more than 150 species to identify.

    Understanding the Cherokee climate

    Cherokee experiences 4 different seasons but its mild, temperate climate ensures that temperatures don’t reach uncomfortable extremes. The mountains are topped with snow for long periods during winter, although the valley rarely sees more than a light dusting. At this time of year, Cherokee vacation rentals make great bases for skiing or snow-tubing breaks, with the added bonus of low-season rates. Summer highs seldom top the mid 80s and the evenings are tempered by cool breezes. Cherokee vacation rentals in the mountains are especially popular with visitors looking to experience the region’s fresh air and panoramic views in the summer months.

    Cherokee’s famous neighbor

    The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the must-visit natural attractions of the eastern United States, as well as one of its largest protected areas. The park encompasses a variety of habitats, from mountains to rivers, dense forests to wildflower meadows. Many species of mammals live in the park, such as raccoons, bobcats, skunks, and coyotes. The observation tower at Clingman’s Dome marks the highest point of the Smoky Mountain range, providing spectacular views of the spruce-firs that only grow at the highest elevations. Cherokee vacation rentals provide a convenient gateway to this remarkable natural wonder.
