Not too long ago while in Cherokee, North Carolina for a short stay, I scoured the internet for FREE things to do while in town. Cherokee is such a charming town, but there is very little about it on-line that doesn’t involve dollar signs.
🙁 $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ 🙁
I found some websites that listed things such as “watch butterflies mate” and “wade in a creek” as some of the very few things that actually were free to do.
We took 2 of our 3 boys with us though, so I thought there should be a list of FREE THINGS TO DO IN CHEROKEE, NC listed on-line somewhere that was real and serious!
Here are the things that we found that were free to do:
- Take pictures with the many bear statues along the main streets in Cherokee FOR FREE.
You get the picture 🙂
- You can also take pictures with the other various statues FOR FREE:
- You could take pictures of other odd things you see FOR FREE!
Okay, seriously now, all fun aside –
- Another FUN and FREE thing to do in Cherokee, NC is to visit the Oconaluftee Islands Park!
Now, I could list the other things that are free like: connecting with nature, taking a stroll, etc. but the focus of this article is FREE things to do in Cherokee, NC and honestly – this is it.
There are other websites out there that will list for you the other free stuff like watching someone trout fish, but I wanted to list engaging activities that the kiddies will want to do that were free. I wish there were more things, but this is it in a nutshell. Everything else has a price tag attached to it. If you’re into spending $ you could go visit the casino or have your picture taken with an Indian. (But don’t take the kids to the casino, they have new rules now that literally just went into effect. Your kids practically can’t leave the room now 🙁 and the pool is still under renovation.)
That’s all folks! 🙂
