Gaming Thrills amid Smoky Mountain Seclusion

Across an 80,000-square-foot casino floor, live dealers shuffle and cut decks at blackjack and mini baccarito tables, and nearby, thousands of video-gaming machines flash and chime. Up above, however, multiple towers overlook the Appalachian peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where the only light is sunshine and the only trilling sound is birdsong. Harrah's Cherokee Hotel & Casino unites the exhilaration of 24-hour gaming with the relaxing feel of a secluded lodge nestled amid a natural preserve.

In the lobby, natural stone inlay textures the floor and columns, and a waterfall-style fountain of tiered rock and ferns pays homage to the landscape of the Smokies. The resort's newest high-rise, the Creek Tower, exhibits more modern flair with a shimmering monolith of glass with an undulating rooftop. Inside, Creek Tower luxury rooms boast streamlined furnishings and bold, funky color accents. Atop another peak, Soco Tower suites possess an airy separate living room and a second bathroom, offering enough space to construct poker tables out of spare poker chips.

Alongside the perpetual sensory feast at the 24-hour casino, a number of dining options keep pace with bouts of hunger during the day or night. Harrah's premier restaurant, Paula Deen's Kitchen, serves à la carte meals of southern-inspired fare three times daily, and other spots stay open until the wee hours—including the Noodle Bar, which whips up dim sum and oxtail soup until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. and sits beside the new Asian-themed gaming room.

Cherokee, North Carolina: Native American History near Great Smoky Mountain Splendor

Surrounding the town of Cherokee, the Qualla Boundary houses the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation as well as Native American institutions such as the Museum of the Cherokee Indian. There, a series of contemporary photographs commemorates the 1838 tragedy of the Trail of Tears, which forced most local Cherokees to Oklahoma. Nowadays, the tribe endures as an independent sovereign nation and continues to create traditional craftwork, much of which is on display at Qualla Arts and Crafts.

Picturesque woodlands encircle Cherokee, from the Nantahala National Forest in the south to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the north. There, moderate temperatures in low-altitude areas allow year-round hiking amid white-tailed deer and fir trees. The southern tip of the 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway makes for a great scenic drive thanks to the area's crests, rolling meadows, and recent legalization of rubbernecking.
