Andrews NC is a beautiful small town located within the heart of the Western North Carolina Mountains that is largely un-touched by large city influences. In today's hectic, modern world, Andrews remains a place that enjoy a more leisurely pace of life. The city has a thriving downtown with restaurants, retail shops, bed and breakfast inns, and artists' galleries and is a great jumping off point for outdoor adventures in the surrounding mountains. 

The highest elevation near Andrews in Cherokee County is 5,149 feet, near Tusquitee Bald in the Fires Creek area, and the 466 square mile county encompasses 300,000 acres, with over 90,000 of those owned by the US Forest Service. Andrews is also home to the Andrews Art Museum run by the Valleytown Cultural Arts and Historical Society. The museum has rotating exhibits of local and regional artists. A unique activity in Andrews is the annual Western North Carolina Wagon Train, where wagon train enthusiasts annually make the trek from Andrews to Walhalla, South Carolina in covered wagons and on horseback.
