Cherokee is your place to be… for a day, a weekend or a lifetime.
Cherokee sits in the beautiful Little Sioux River Valley in Northwest Iowa. We are located at the junction of U.S. Hwy 59 and State Hwy. 3, about 60 miles northeast of Sioux City, IA. The Little Sioux River winds through town and provides an excellent recreational source for fishing and canoeing as well as a backdrop to a beautiful park system.
Our Historic Downtown was built in the 1870’s and features many unique shopping opportunities. Cherokee’s Main Street was designated as a Cultural District by the State of Iowa in 2004. Live music and entertainment can be heard throughout the year, but especially during the annual Jazz & Blues Festival.
Cherokee is home to the Cherokee PRCA Rodeo, Sanford Museum and Planetarium, Cherokee County Fair, Depot Renovation and Cherokee Symphony.
The Cherokee Chamber of Commerce strives to make Cherokee a positive place to live, visit and do business. Whether you are looking for something entertaining to do this weekend, or a new community to call home, a good place to shop or a place to open a new business, the Cherokee Chamber can help.
