Mt Airy, North Carolina

For those that are true Americans you can't get more Apple Pie than being with Andy and Barney 
from " The Andy Griffith Show" .  Let's not forget about Aunt Bee and Opie too. We pulled off the Blue Ridge Parkway to visit a little town in North Carolina called Mt Airy. It was the home town of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for his hit television show. It is like a step back in time in the historic section of town. There are sidewalks that lead you past shops with the theme song playing from the show.  The old Ford police cruiser is still parked along the street. Snappy Lunch and even Floyd's Barber shop are there where Floyd's grandson is still cutting hair today. It is a lovely area that reflects a much simpler time.
