This town is the Roadside Attraction. On the way back from Florida we swung by Mt. Airy where actor Andy Griffith was born.  The town of 10, 300 people is believed to have been the basis for Mayberry, the setting of the TV shows “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Mayberry RFD”. Mt. Airy had Floyd’s Barber Shop, Opie’s Candy Store, Aunt Bea’s Restaurant, Ford Galaxy police cars, a museum with Andy Griffith collectables and Barney’s Cafe where they serve a Barney Burger. If you like the Andy Griffith Show, this will be a memorable stop.
