Go ahead. Whistle. We know you want to. Just strolling through our downtown near our hotel in Mt. Airy makes people want to whistle. There's something, well, just familiar about passing Wally's Service Station, Floyd's Barber Shop, Gomer and Goober's tow truck and Aunt Bee's Room. Hmmm. Can't quite put a finger on it? Was that a 1962 squad car that just passed by on the way to Checkpoint Chicky? Perhaps when you see the life-sized bronze statues of Andy and Opie walking with fishing poles the tune will come back. That's right: You got it-Mt. Airy was Andy Griffith's hometown and inspiration for Mayberry.
There's a ton of other activities near our Hampton Inn® hotel in Mt. Airy. From North Carolina's famous vineyards to the quaint shopping of downtown, you'll find something for everyone here. Drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Discover the Smoky Mountains for yourself. Attend a festival, or explore our history. It's all right here, just a few minutes from the Hampton Inn hotel in Mt. Airy, in the real Mayberry.
