Sewanee, The University of the South: Sewanee, TN

This 13,000-acre campus on the Cumberland Plateau overlooking the Tennessee Valley combines Gothic-inspired architecture with magnificent surroundings: forest, lakefront bluffs, and a garden ravine that follows a stream through campus. In spring, it blooms with daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips.

Photo-op: All Saints’ Chapel draws inspiration from the University Church at Oxford and Notre Dame in Paris.

To-Do List: Burgers at Shenanigans followed by a show at the Tennessee Williams Center, named after the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright who left his estate to Sewanee. —Ratha Tep
