Maggie Valley
Maggie Valley is in the center of it all, the Great Smoky Mountains.  It is here that you will find children and families fill the summer air with laughter when they visit Ghost Town in the Sky, an amusement park scheduled to open in May, 2007. 
The Valley is surrounded with scenic beauty, it is the heart of the mountains.  And from you can get to Cataloochee Valley, home to a few new Appalachian residents, the Elk
Maggie Valley is also home to most of the square dancing clubs in the area, the Stompin' Grounds, the Diamond K Dance Ranch and the Maggie Valley Opry House, home of Raymond Fairchild.  If banjo playing is your choice of music, then a visit should definitely be on your list of things to do.  
The Carolina Nights Dinner Theater will also fill your night with your evening with great food and a musical variety show.  And entertainment galore at Eaglenest Entertainment, which according to some, is the finest entertainment venue in Western North Carolina.
Other attractions include the Appalachian Amusement Center which is where you will see skydiving professionals and first time flyers demonstrate a three dimensional blend of ballet and acrobatics.  And one of Haywood County's Treasures, the Wheels Through Time Museum.  The museum is a nationally recognized destination stop for motorcycle fans from all across the U.S. 
Cherokee is just up the hill from Maggie Valley and is where you will find Harrah's Cherokee Casino.  Harrah's has it all!  You'll find over 3.300 of your favorite games, live dealers, real chips and real action.
