Perched atop the Cumberland Plateau, between Nashville and Chattanooga, St. Andrew's-Sewanee and the surrounding communities offer beautiful views, excellent dining, and more outdoor activities than a visitor can accomplish in a single visit.

Sewanee, home to the University of the South, provides year-round cultural and athletic opportunities, including lectures, concerts, art exhibitions, movies, plays, a five-week Summer Music Festival and the nationally-renowned Sewanee Writers' Conference. The University's gothic stone architecture (quarried from local sandstone) is similar to that of Oxford University in England. Downtown Sewanee includes restaurants, gift stores, and an outdoor venue for concerts. Local artisans and craftsmen sell their wares in local shops and at frequent fairs. 

The 13,000-acre domain of the University, which adjoins the SAS campus, is a paradise of forests, bluffs, and waterfalls with hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The views are incredible, with cliffs dropping off a thousand feet to the valley below. Additional outdoor recreation, including boating and caving, can be pursued at the region's state parks. Canoeing and whitewater rafting are also just a short drive away.
