Get to Know Cherokee
Prep for Your Cherokee Visit
Cherokee, North Carolina, is the hub of the surrounding 56,000-acre Qualla Boundary, the proper name for the reservation of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee. During the summer, the community buzzes with the voices of people window shopping along Main Street or visiting the Native American attractions. Although Harrah’s Casino draws folks interested in Vegas-style gambling without the big city hustle, Cherokee remains a family-friendly town with a satisfying mix of historic sites and outdoor fun.
