Why do families who experience a Cherokee area vacation never venture anywhere else? Because Cherokee is at the heart of a four state mountain paradise with thousands of attractions. More than you can see and do in a week, a month or a year, but a lifetime of fascinating natural splendors wrapped in the three most treasured brands of hospitality on Earth … Native American hospitality, Southern hospitality and Mountain hospitality.
The beautiful town of Cherokee is anchored by the world-class accommodations and games of Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, but beyond the tables, suites and eclectic cuisine are three thousand waterfalls and hundreds of historic sites wrapped in mountains more than a million years old.
These are the same tourist videos that are being seen by tens of thousands of hotel guests daily from the Visitors' Information Channels TV shows. VIC provides visitors with interesting facts about each area in an entertaining fashion and offer a glimpse into some of the best tourist destinations in the Mountain south.

Hendersonville Parks Bond Referendum
Hendersonville's city council is putting the future of its parks in the hands of voters. A $6 million bond referendum for city parks will be on the ballot in November.
The money will go towards expanding Berkeley Park, the 60-acre park in the northern end of the city. The park was previously an employee recreation area for the Kimberly-Clark Corporation location at Berkeley Mills, but the company donated the space to the city in 2008.
Two years ago, city council commissioned a study to determine how to improve the park. A master plan was developed that includes a mountain biking area, an amphitheatre for concerts, soccer fields, and improvements to the picnic areas and baseball field, which was built in 1946.
When our kids are grown they're not gonna remember the material objects that we've purchased for them. They're gonna remember the outings and the vacations and the days at the park and the picnics, says Heather Boeke, a Henderson County resident and mother.
The referendum would be paid for by a city bond issuance of up to $6 million. City property taxes would be raised to recover the cost of servicing the interest on the bonds. The exact amount of the increase has not yet been determined, but city finance director Jim Rudisill expects it to be around a three-cent increase. That would equal an increase of $60 per year on a

In Cherokee NC Living my best life
Tail of the Dragon Junior
This video was taken on Hwy 64 between Franklin NC (elevation 2025’) and Highlands NC (elevation 4118’) from my 1976 Triumph TR6, top down of course. The entire trip is 17 miles long, but this short uphill stretch covers only 7.1 miles and follows the Cullasaja River and Gorge on the right with a gain of altitude of about 1900’ during the footage. I was going relatively slow because of the narrowness of the highway, sharp turns and the usual Sunday mountain sightseeing traffic. I suspect this section of Hwy 64 rivals the famous “Tail of the Dragon” US 129 highway (located between NC and TN…318 curves in 11 miles) when comparing actual curves per mile. It’s a blast to drive and the scenery is simply beautiful. Pardon the wind snap and dampened exhaust tone, as the camera is mounted on the outside of the windshield. Hope you enjoy the experience.ription

Kayaking on the West Fork of the Tuckasegee River in North Carolina 2014
Duke Energy provides recreational water releases on the West Fork of the Tuckasegee River 7 times each year. This short video was shot at the put-in, near the Glenville Dam and High Falls. This weekend (April 19/20) marks the first releases of 2014. This run requires Class IV/V skills and a commitment consistent with wilderness rivers, given the remote nature of the gorge and private property. The West Fork has several class IV+ rapids including a 25+ foot slide, and lots of wood. Places to stay:
