Cherokee,NC with Kids

How much is there to do in Cherokee this time if year with Kids? I have heard that Cherokee is seasonal on some activities.

There is little to do in Cherokee any time of year. Do the kids like to gamble? If so, the casino is very nice!
You can fish the stream that runs through town (be sure to buy the correct permits) or you can pay to watch the Indians do their ceremonial dances or buy a peace pipe. Cherokee is just a tourist trap with a casino and nothing more.

There is a museum and it has a lot of great info about the trail of tears. Not sure if they still have the performance this late in the season or not. There is the Great Smokey Mountain Train Ride, river rafting and I am sure other things you can enjoy in nearby towns. I guess it would depend on the age of your children and what your interest are. Hope your family has a fun trip.

Hi Heater,
Your one mountain away from many things for kids to do. Like bsirby mentioned the answer all depends on the ages and likes of the kids. There is a lot to do in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The visitors center is a short drive from Cherokee. Drive through the park and you'll be in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN area. There you'll find many activities for the kids. Outside activities in the GSMNP and outside and inside activities in Pigeon Forge, TN area.

Go to Great Smoky Mountains National Park (U.S. National Park Service) and Add Pigeon Forge, TN Activities to Your Trip - What to Do in Pigeon Forge and read about things to do.

IMO kids will like Maggie Valley much better than Cherokee.
