Cherokee, North Carolina

From Blue Ridge, Georgia, we took the hour and a half trek to Cherokee, North Carolina. A small reservation town in the Smoky Mountains, it is largely overrun with tourists, but charming nonetheless. We spent a good amount of time at the top of a mountain, among the clouds, taking in the mountainous surroundings. We walked around the delightful town and that was essentially the entirety of our day.

The stunning views from Smokey Mountains captured our hearts. After spending most of the time at the mountains, we walked through the small shops below. The locals claim they have the best burgers, but, alas, as a vegetarian I cannot confirm. Overall, I’d recommend this for some beautiful views and hikes in North Carolina, but not as the ultimate vacation getaway.
