When visiting Mt. Airy you have to stop to take a picture if nothing else. Did not go into the museum.

The statue of Andy & Opie is NOT at the visitors' center but at the Andy Griffith museum. We did stop in the center and they were very friendly and helpful.

Yvonne was very helpful for mapping out the area. She penciled our map on where to visit, what to do first. She had walking areas and driving areas mapped out as well.
