I am sitting at work today with the doors wide open trying my best to enjoy this awesome day. It is so beautiful outside and days like this really accentuate the beauty of Cherokee Village. My name is Greta and my husband, Eddie, and I are pursuing a dream of sharing Cherokee Village with others. This blog will be a place for us to tell you about our adventures and for our friends and fellow adventurers to share their experiences too.
After leaving for college, I really came to appreciate all of the things that my small town life had to offer. First of all, let me tell you about the lakes! Cherokee Village, alone, offers 7 lakes! That is 7 lakes to fish, swim, paddleboard, kayak, ski, and so much more! Second, we have South Fork River. This river is great for families to enjoy and you can do as much or as little of it as you’d like! Just drop in your kayak and off you go! Next, we have the golf courses. My family has been enjoying the two golf courses in Cherokee Village as long as I can remember. These courses are world class and well-maintained. These are just a few of the things that I can highlight for you.
Our main goal is to share Cherokee Village with you! If you’re from Jonesboro and looking for something to do on a beautiful day (like today), we are only about an hour away. You can rent a paddleboard from us and have it in one of the lakes in 30 minutes probably after you make it to our shop. Stay for the day and hit up one of our nice local restaurants or have a picnic at one of the MANY parks. If you’re from Cherokee Village, I invite you to branch out of your normal fishing hole! Come see us and let us help you find the hidden jewels of our small town that you may not know about.
We have big plans for Village Adventures and we’re enjoying every step of it. Beginning in May, we will be featuring a weekly event on Thursday evenings. Mainly, this event will be a float trip down South Fork River. It will be a shorter trip and just in time for people getting off work. Bring your whole family! We will have kayaks available to rent for these events and you should reserve yours ahead of time to make sure you get one!
Our shop will be open April 2nd. We are so very excited about this new avenue of sharing our beautiful town. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest to make sure you’re up-to-date on all the fun things we are up to. Make plans to stop in and see us in town center! Your ADVENTURE awaits!
Our company has been created out of a love for Cherokee Village and the surrounding area. This blog is written by us and others that share that love. Each post will share something unique about what this area has to offer. Thanks for stopping by, hope we see you soon!
