MOUNT AIRY NORTH CAROLINA

Mt. Airy: Historic Mt. Airy / Andy Griffith Town and Museum / Antique Stores / Paint Ball

Mayberry RFD icon Andy Griffith grew up in Mount Airy, North Carolina, and it’s no coincidence that a stroll down Mount Airy’s Main Street reminds people of the town of Mayberry from The Andy Griffith Show. In addition to Mayberry RFD and Andy Griffith, visitors find that Mount Airy, North Carolina is a great jumping off point for exploring the Yadkin Valley wine region, the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway, the stunning pinnacle of Pilot Mountain, or the twangy sound of bluegrass and old-time music. Whatever your passion, we invite you to step back to a simpler time when you visit Andy Griffith’s hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina—affectionately known as Mayberry RFD.
