“A treat to see”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

What an experience!! It was like visiting Mayberry, exploring the court house, the filling station and seeing the Darling's home was great. Lots of memorabilia inside Wally's and the clerk was a wealth of knowledge.

“Wally's”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Wally's service station is right out of the Andy Griffith Show. It has a small store, the replica of the court house/jail, and you can take a ride in the police car for a tour of the city. A fun thing to do and see places you may not know where are. Highly recommend .

“Fun Stop”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This stop was one of the highlights of my trip. It is about a 10 minute walk from the downtown shops and there is some parking available if you want to drive. There is a replica of the jail and you can sit at the desk and go into the jail cells. Next door, there is Wally's Service Station which has the police car parked out there if it isn't on a tour. There are a few chairs to sit on outside of the shop. Inside the shop is gift shop with a lot of Mayberry merchandise. Bathrooms are also available. In the back there is the Darling Cottage. If you are a Mayberry fan this is a place you need to stop if in Mt. Airy.

“Best Part of the Day”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely loved it. Had a small cabin out back and several old vehicles nearby. Very friendly staff was answering questions and really seemed interested in interacting with customers.

“Completely corny, but very fun!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Husband and I did this first so we knew what to do in Mt. Airy. Driver was great. Very funny and gave a lot of facts about the town. Nice to see a town embrace who they are and what makes them famous. Gotta love small business owners that are making a difference in a small town. Great fun. We visited 4 vineyards after this. Highly recommend the area for great wine.
