Mayberry USA

Mt. Airy, NC is Andy Griffith's hometown and what Mayberry in the show is based on.  It's about 2 hours from where we live.  Mark's mom came to visit us the middle of June and thought she'd like to see it, so we went.  It is a very small town and relies heavily on the tourism---it is obvious.
Above is Wally's Service Station.  There is also an old squad car there that you can take a tour of Mayberry in, but it was gone.  Below is a photo of the outside of the Andy Griffith Museum.
And the Mayberry Courthouse.  Loads of photos being taken there.
Andy and Opie going fishing....and Mark tagging along.
Apparently you can still get $8 haircuts at Floyd's Barber Shop.
