Welcome to the
Chamber of Commerce
Hospitality. Charm. Adventure. Pick your pleasure!
Hospitality, Charm, along with a healthy dose of Adventure, are inviting you to head to the where North Carolina begins.
What’s your pleasure? Fishing on serene lakes, white water rafting on rivers from the beginner to the experienced; hiking trails for the gentle strollers to the avid adventurers; enjoying scenic train rides through the beautiful Smoky Mountains?
How about the bright lights and hypnotic sounds of a casino? After all, a little change may change your life. And whatever way you decide to spend your day - spend your nights (or just your down time) in one of our first class accommodations in Murphy, or a luxury cabin by the lake, in the woods, or on the mountains.
Whether you want to spend quiet time in the mountains, come into town and grab a local-made brew and listen to good mountain music, or bring your buddies to go kayaking down the river - head to the far west corner of NC - where NC begins.
Hanging Dog ... Sweat Heifer ... where are we?
It's not just the people that have character in our region - but even the names of our communities are rich in character and backstory.
In addition to learning about our three main communities, take a look at what's behind the names of the many communities that add to the rich heritage of Cherokee County.
