Tour Mayberry!

"No visit to Mayberry is complete without a ride in Mayberry's squad car!"

The first thing we did while in Mayberry was take a tour in style. The tour lasted about 30-45 minutes. It took us all around town and showed highlights like Andy Griffith's home place, Floyd's Barbershop*, Snappy Lunch*, and a few other points of interest*. The tour guide we had was really cool and very informative. Wally's Service Station is the homebase for the tours. Inside Wally's is a little gift shop that is pretty neat and old timey looking.

Pumkinbutt had a great time! This was his favorite part of the entire Mayberry trip...tring to see how long he could hang out in the squad car.

He's one cool dude!

This Tow Truck is located next to the service station. Goober says "Hey"...I highly recommend doing the tour (336-789-OPIE) 625 S. Main St.

* will be covered in upcoming posts

Lord woman you are killing me with all these posts. Your making me want to leave for Mt. Airy now but I have a little over a month to go. Your giving me all these extra ideas of things to do. I hope we can fit all these things in the short time we are going to be there. Thanks for the posts I can't wait to read the rest of the Mayberry stories you have to tell.
