We have creeks for tubing, trails for hiking and horseback riding, and beautiful waterfalls. We’re home to the Cherokee Indian Reservation and the North Carolina half of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Also visit the Fly Fishing Museum to learn both the history of fly fishing as well as the arts, the sciences, the crafts and the skills of fly fishing.

The purpose of the museum is to capture and preserve the history of fly fishing in the region, since it is being lost daily as our “old timers” pass away and as modern methods and new generations of anglers move fly fishing forward through technology. Also located inside the Chamber of Commerce.
