The town of Mount Airy, NC is the birthplace of Andy Griffith, and it’s also know as Mayberry, NC. Although it’s only about 45 mins from where I grew up, this was my first time visiting downtown Mouny Airy.
The downtown area is one short strip down a single road, and if you blink you’ll miss it! That would be unfortunate, because it’s a really cute town. From soda shops, southern food, specialty stores, seasonal decor, and painted brick walls it’s a really interesting place. My family and I had a great time walking through the town and we tried some great desserts! Every once in a while you’ll see a classic police car “squad car” riding by that’s similar to the one on the Andy Griffith show. They havetours where you can ride around town in the squad car. If you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth a visit to Downtown Mount Airy!
