• “We cordially invite you to be Mayberry’s guest of honor for the day.” –Andy Taylor

    There are plenty of Mayberry, North Carolina sights and sounds to see in Mount Airy and surrounding areas. But there’s more extending beyond The Andy Griffith Show, from the Round Peak-style of old-time string music and old-time dances to the 19th century Siamese Twins and the century-old farm on nearby Horne Creek Farm.

    Fun activities for all ages...
