MOUNTAINS. MUSIC. MAYBERRY. MERLOT. Historic Downtown Mount Airy resides at the doorstep of the Blue Ridge Mountains where our small town living is enhanced by arts, entertainment, local wine, craft brews, and our Traditional Music roots. Mayberry 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. Known as one of the friendliest towns in America, people come to Mount Airy looking to step back to a simpler time. It is near impossible to walk down Main Street without meeting someone who greets you like an old friend. In Mount Airy, you can slow down and discover the wine of the Yadkin Valley, the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountain views, unique mom and pop shops and local restaurants, and the twangy sound of Bluegrass and Old-Time music native to our neck of the woods. Mount Airy is a true southern town with all the charm of Mayberry.
