Although Cherokee County is known for its great outdoors, there are also plenty of things to do around our towns. We promise you won’t be bored!

We have several restaurants throughout Murphy and Andrews ranging from classic American delis, to genuine Chinese and Mexican cuisine to our famous North Carolina barbeque.  You will find an excellent selection of North Carolina style pulled pork, barbeque ribs and baked beans. You can also find cafés and coffee shops for those times when you’re just looking for a place to grab a cup of coffee and relax, and sports bars and grilles for the times when you want to eat some wings and watch a big game. For those who are in a hurry, there is also a selection of fast-food places.

After you’ve got your belly full, come check out one of our local wineries or breweries. Seeing how some of your favorite beverages are made is a fun way to spend your afternoon. You can even sample the products and buy some to take home with you.

If you aren’t into breweries or wineries, visit our historical museums, where you’ll find information about Cherokee County’s history and how we came to be the amazing destination that we are today. We also have theaters around town if you want to catch a movie.
