We will travel approximately 2 hours taking in the beautiful countryside through Greensboro and High Point. We will arrive in Mt. Airy mid-morning. With sufficient participation, a step-on guide to join our bus or van as we tour the town of Mt. Airy. We will then proceed to the Mt. Airy Visitors Center, the Andy Griffith Museum, and then the Behind-the-Scenes Playhouse tour. Expect some time to browse the town for lunch on your own and also enjoy our arranged guides. See the inspiration for Floyd’s Barber Shop, Wally’s Service Station, and perhaps enjoy lunch at Slappy’s Café, which inspired the diner in the television show.
