ARCHITECTURE/BUILDINGS

The Aunt Bee Room
You can find the Mayberry Motor Inn right in the heart of Mount Airy on the Andy Griffith Parkway. The inn is owned by Alma Venable and has been in her family for fifty years. But what sets the inn apart from others is that it has a room full of memorabilia that once belonged to Francis Bavier, who played Aunt Bee on The Andy Griffith Show.
Mayberry Courthouse
The Mayberry Courthouse is not an actual courthouse, but it is modeled after Andy Griffith's Mayberry courthouse. It has two cells that you can open and go inside (awesome for the "Help, I'm in jail!" photo op), a replica of Andy's desk, and some lo-tech police equipment. The best part? The brick.
Wally's Service Station
Wally's Service Station is a Mount Airy attraction that is modeled on the gas station where Goober worked on the Andy Griffith Show. You can't get gas here or have your car serviced, but you can buy tons of knickknacks and Mayberry novelty items. You can also tour the town of Mount Airy in a replica police car which departs from Wally's.

ART/STATUES

Andy Griffith And Opie TV Land Statue
Standing outside the Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, you'll find these Andy & Opie statues that were given to the museum by TV Land in 2004. There is another set in Raleigh, NC as well.
Elrock Sculpture Garden
In Mount Airy, there is a little ice cream stand called Scoops Ice Cream & Such. Run out of a van by Chazz Elstone, Scoops is a favorite of many from Mount Airy. But Scoops Ice Cream & Such holds a secret.
Modern Mufflers & Turtle Auto Spa Muffler People And Turtles
Modern Mufflers & Turtle Auto Spa, like any self-respecting muffler shop, has created people made out of mufflers to advertise their business. But what really sets Modern Mufflers & Turtle Auto Spa apart from other muffler shops is their muffler turtles!

AUTOMOBILES/VEHICLES

Subway Mayberry Police Car
Like most everything in Mount Airy, this little car in front of a Subway restaurant has a Mayberry theme.
Subway Mayberry Police Car And Van
This Subway police car and van can be found on the Andy Griffith Parkway in the middle of Mount Airy.

FOOD & DRINK

The Loaded Goat
The Loaded Goat was one of the 64 participants in the Strange Carolinas North Carolina Burger Bracket tournament, where they finished second overall!

Old North State Winery
Old North State Winery was one of the 64 participants in the Strange Carolinas North Carolina Taco Tournament, where they lost in the first round to K38 Baja Grill.

GIANTS/BIG THINGS

PET Milk Carton
This PET milk carton sits outside H&S Dairy in Mount Airy. According to Jason Frey's Moon Blue Ridge & Smoky Mountains, the carton has been around since the 1940s.

GRAVESITES

Gravesite Of Siamese Twins Eng And Chang Bunker
Siamese twins Eng and Chang Bunker are buried in the graveyard directly behind the White Plains Baptist Church in Mt. Airy. Their grave is easy to find; it's pretty much front and central.

SIGNAGE

Dairy Center Sign
The Dairy Center sign has been around since the Dairy Center opened for business in 1954. Prior to that, the business had been a Dairy Queen for three years.
Starlite Motel Sign
This classic StarLite Motel sign can be found right along the Andy Griffith Parkway in Mount Airy, NC. Doesn't it remind you of the classic Holiday Inn sign?
Young Enterprises Metal Man
This giant metal man can be found outside Young Enterprises in Mount Airy. He's a little worse for wear, with an arm that looks like it's hanging on by a thread.
