nearest casino?

I've just started looking at Asheville as a place to retire...know very little about it, but friends want to retire there as well. They're not gamblers, though. Guess who is? (grin) Is there a casino nearby? I've read the boards and see mention of Cherokee...how long does it take to get there, please? Thanks.

Thanks,... I wasn't able to use the link, unfortunately. Can someone give me a "guesstimate" of the mileage and time, please? Thanks!

Make "google maps" your friend. It is interesting that you're planning to move to Asheville but <<...know very little about it>>

For gamblers it would be closer to Cherokee if you live in Waynesville, Maggie Valley or Sylva.
