Oh my it really is hillbilly country here and the flag flies proudly. Today I headed to Dollywood. I think Dolly is fantastic so don't want to say anything too bad, but the word lame continually sprung to mind. Doesn't mean I didn't giggle all day long, but alas it was more at rather than with. Sorry Lou Lou I had such high hopes for a positive report. If anyone's been, and probably most of you haven't, it's a bit like Timbertown ...
... to pay the 50 cent fair with a $5 note he said "I can't ... I say I can't possibly change that" complete with cartoon character drawl, I nearly fell off my seat laughing. I'm sure he thought me quite odd. And the town itself is fantastic. If Nashville is the buckle this place could make up the rest of the belt all on its own. I passed one store called "God's Corner" only to cross the street and ...

We learned during our visit that it was PEAK time to see the changing leaves, and they were GORGEOUS! (See my main blog picture for a great example of the colors...was ideal at the bottom of the mountains, but as we went up, the trees had already lost their leaves...)
... device, an old foundation, and some stone walls, including one that is still in very good shape. We also stopped at the big tulip poplar tree with a hole so big, at least two people can fit inside. After some amusing pictures, including handstands and yoga poses at the tree, we continued along the trail. But we didn't go too fast, because there were just too many opportunities for beautiful pictures of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel
Hotel Gets an "A' but Casino Gets a "C"
We spent 2 nights and 3 days at the Hotel/Casino. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Our room was very large and beautifully furnished. It ranks with the best hotels in Vegas and is far better than the Harrahs in Vegas. The casino is another story. If you don't like to be around cigarette smoke you will hate it there. The casino always seemed cold with the ceiling vents always blowing cold air down on you. The rest room sink water was ICY cold. The change people were not very customer friendly. There were no supervisory personnel visibly obvious to handle concerns or questions. The slots were numerous but not very generous in payback. In my opinion a lot of work remains to make this a really enjoyable experience.
Had a enjoyable weekend at Harrahs Casino.Enjoyed the show and food at the fresh market square. Will return to Harrahs in the near future.
A Very Pleasant Experience
Even though our time spent there was extremely short, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
We plan to return next year, time permitting, and we will stay longer.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Thank for the hospitality.
Always a joy to visit and stay at Harrahs Casino Hotel
I always enjoy going to Cherokee-(EVEN WHEN I LOSE)the Hotel is Beautiful-and so clean-service is great--the Food is more than great--and everyone of the employee's are so kind and nice and friendly--always having time to make you feel welcome and wish you luck--I have been to many casino's but have never found one that could beat the cleanliness and friendliness that you find at Harrahs Cherokee Casino in Cherokee,N.C.

NOT Kid Friendly, Prepare to Lose Big time
What a terrible setup, kids cannot go to all except 1 restaurant, which is the expensive one, because they are in the middle of the casino and they forbid kids to walk thru to get to them, also blackjack was a total money pit, especially for Harrahs, there is a live dealer but only to press the buttons and watch what the computer decides to give you for cards, playing without live real cards was like putting our money in the garbage. We will NEVER come back to any Harrahs property, we will return to Las Vegas soon as we do many times a year.
Loved the casino and hotel-Harrahs.perfect vacation for you.
we were very happy with all the people involved with the casino and Harrah hotel.it is a perfect place to vacation.very relaxing and excellent food.
Pleasing experience but confussed
Harrahs motel was a pleasing experience, however obtaining a room there seems to be next to impossible if you are not a high level rewards point holder or hold an upper tier level.
We stayed one night Fall 2002 and it was the nicest, most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in! I figured there'd be a lot of noise due to the Casino, but we never heard any noise in the hall or from our room. It was soooo quiet! The rooms were huge, and the lobbies and walkways were beautifully decorated... almost like walking through a museum in some places. The only problem we encountered was the astronomical phone charges - We made three very short long-distance calls and the charge for that was more than $80! We will never use a hotel phone for long-distance again, so you could call that part of the experience our Lesson Learned. Maryanne & Sandra, Watkinsville GA
