Step back in time when things were not so rushed. Enjoy relaxing in our rocking chairs while drinking a cold bottle of pop and enjoying the simple life of Wally's.

This is a fun and entertaining way to see Mayberry and hear the history of Andy Griffith! It is 40$ a carload +plus tip and lasts about 40 minutes.

Local artisans have items for sale as well as lots of Mayberry related items. Old Timey candies such as BB Bats, Kits, Sugar Daddies, etc. A must see when visiting Mt. Airy.
