Live from Mt. Airy, North Carolina

Chris takes a trip to beautiful Mount Airy, North Carolina, also known as “America’s Hometown”, to check out all they have to offer and reports back live from the scenic downtown.

Mount Airy is also known as Mayberry to the many Andy Griffith fans out there and Jessica Johnson from the Mt. Airy Visitors Center takes Chris on a tour of the Andy Griffith Museum.

In addition to being the home of Mayberry, Mount Airy (and the surrounding Surry County area) is home to many vineyards and wineries.  Ken Gulaian from Round Peak Vineyards explains why the land and climate of Surry County are perfect for cultivating grape vines.

A stone’s throw from Pilot Mountain, Mount Airy offers endless outdoor activities for nature enthusiasts. Catrina Alexander, the town’s Parks and Recreation Director, discusses all there is to do in Mount Airy.
