They are not only thorough in offering their help; They go out of their way to interact with tourists, becoming almost a new personal friend.

“Mayberry R Us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

If you're a fan of the Andy Griffith show. Its all here. The residents don't call it Mayberry, but we're nice to you when you do :-) Come to Floyds and the Snappy Lunch. See the old jail and other landmarks. Take a squad car tour.

“Not everybody is there for Mayberry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Visitors Center should consider that not all travelers to their town are there because of Andy Griffith and Mayberry. We just like exploring and visiting small towns. But they were very helpful.

“All The Info You Need!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

We found the Visitor's Center full of all kinds of information, lots of brochures, and maps of the town of Mt. Airy that turned out to be very helpful. The gentleman who was working when we went inside was very friendly and informative.

“Great tip on a restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

My sister and I didn't know where to eat. We walked into the visitors' center and asked the lady at the desk (Friday evening, September 16 @ about 6 p.m.). I asked for something moderately priced, but not a diner type place. Right away she went to the kiosk and pulled out a post card for The Depot at Cody Creek.

We followed her excellent directions and had a great meal there.
