Most interesting Main Street. You can walk up and down the road and see shops from Andy’s shows. Very quaint and eclectic. Great variety of shops. Super great for a stroll on a beautiful day.

We walked from the Andy Griffith museum to downtown area, only a couple of blocks. Lots of interesting shops and businesses along Main Street and several places to eat and get treats. Were at least three ice cream shops. We had lunch at Snappy Lunch.

Great place to visit! Relaxing town and very friendly merchants. Good places to eat and also a suitable jumping off place to go to nearby attractions like Hanging Rock Park, Pilot Mountain, and Jeb Stuart Birthplace in VA.

Downtown is such a nice place to walk the streets, and go in and out of the shops. Love to visit, hope to go again soon.
