Murphy is a town in and the county seat of Cherokee County, North Carolina. Situated at the confluence of the Hiawassee and Valley rivers, it’s an idyllic small town with the added benefit of many wonderful, award winning restaurants and unique shops all within walking distance in the heart of downtown. Murphy is approximately halfway between Atlanta, Georgia and Knoxville, Tennessee, making it highly accessible, and it’s location in the Blue Ridge Mountains has helped it to retain a relatively rural character. Fairly recently, the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino in Murphy was opened for business, and has been a very popular destination for people all over the southeastern United States. Being a relatively old town, with its origins dating back to 1839, the downtown area has been fully restored to perfection, with tree lined streets and many historic buildings returned to their original state. Visiting all of the interesting shops, restaurants and historic buildings in downtown is an enjoyable and scenic tour which could take days. Another favorite pastime for people in Murphy is roaming around one of the several very large flea markets in the town. These markets are potential treasure troves for many enthusiastic shoppers, filled with anything and everything you could possibly imagine. Outdoor recreational activities are unlimited, from trout fishing in the mountain streams, biking or hiking one of the many U.S. Forest Service maintained trails, or boating and skiing on the beautiful and peaceful Hiawassee Lake. Murphy offers something for every sports enthusiast. If you are looking for a beautiful small town in the mountains, look no further.
