About this time last year the four of us set out on a long awaited adventure! You see we are lovers of The Andy Griffith Show and had been dreaming about a trip to Mayberry....or....Mount Airy, NC. Mount Airy is the town Andy grew up in and what the town of Mayberry is modeled after. It DID NOT DISAPPOINT. It is a cute small town that seems to be caught in the past. I will admit much of the shopping is tourist related but still fun. We did manage to find an antique shop, of course. It was a beautiful day and we walked all through the downtown area and then took a squad car tour that showed us a broader view of town and the house where Andy was born. It was well worth the money. Enjoy the pictures.
