A visit to Cherokee Village is often about a challenging round of golf, a fun day on the lake or just relaxing in your private vacation rental. But the entire area surrounding Cherokee Village is filled with fun and interesting things to do. Enjoy a beautiful scenic drive, explore unique boutiques and antique shops or jump into a canoe or kayak and float the Spring River!
Golfing, boating and fishing are the biggest attractions in the Cherokee Village area but not the only ones. You’ll find lots of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy in the area surrounding the Village:
Nestled on the banks of the Spring River, the historic town of Hardy welcomes visitors to the unspoiled Arkansas Ozarks. Surrounded by rolling hills in a pristine natural setting, the charming community is home to picture-postcard shops full of collectibles, antiques and crafts from local artisans.
Mammoth Spring is Arkansas’s largest spring and the second largest spring in the Ozark Mountains. A National Natural Landmark, the spring flows nine million gallons of water hourly. Forming a scenic 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular Ozark trout and float stream.
Every Saturday from late May to mid-October enjoy a vibrant farmer’s market at the Cherokee Village Town Center Plaza. You’ll find fresh, locally grown produce, local crafters, artists, other artisans, musicians, food vendors and more.
Cherokee Village has several nice walking/hiking trails. Pick up a map of the trails at the Cherokee Village Visitors and Information Center located inside City Hall in the Town Center.
The Art Center of North Arkansas gives visitors and residents a dynamic place for inspiration and delight for all art forms – catch a show, hear music, or watch an artist in action, take a mini-class or take up more serious studies to develop hidden talents.
