I hate to pile on the Cherokee here even though they are making the wrong decision but I will. Cherokee seems like a sad cross between gatlinburg and newport. It is depressing driving through and seeing all those neat looking 1950s hotels rotting away next to endless cheap souvenier shops. Neal you are right I don't know what it is but I can never find a good meal there short of Pete's pancake place (which is ok). Bryson city or Maggie Valley are a lot better as far as food goes over on that side. I too wanted to fish the trophy section but I sure would feel like a fool to pay $75 and get skunked (if I pay that much it is sure to happen to me).
