travel: mount airy, nc

hi everyone! happy Monday. i wanted to share our Mount Airy, North Carolina trip with you all from this past weekend. i had several people ask me about the trip and wanted to know more information about andy's house that we stayed at so i thought this would be good to post about.

we left Friday evening and traveled to bristol, TN which was a good stopping point since the drive from Nashville was about 6 hours. we drove late Friday after work and stayed the night in bristol. we woke up early Saturday and had breakfast and only had an hour and a half drive left until we reached mount airy. we arrived at mount airy and immediately started the day at the andy griffith museum. reed is a huge andy fan and loves the andy griffith show. he watched it a lot growing up but still watches it on Netflix every day when he gets home from work (not kidding) every day!!

we loved the museum and we stayed there for an hour or so and then we made our way downtown main street Mayberry. what a cute and quiet little town, we really loved it! we ate lunch at the famous snappy's lunch. this is the lunch spot that is mentioned in the show several times and they are known for their pork chop sandwich. this was such a good hole in the wall place. after lunch, we walked around main street and went shopping.

then, we checked into andy's someplace which is andy's actual home that he grew up in. we loved it! it was such a sweet and small older home with neat memorabilia and items from andy's life. after we checked in, we took a tour in andy's sheriff car and drove through the town learning about the history of the town. we really loved this part as well haha! you can definitely say we are old souls, and we wouldn't have it any other way. i am so thankful that reed is an old soul and appreciates the simple things in life.

after the tour, we ate dinner at 13 bones which was a great steak house. we enjoyed dessert (reeds favorite -red velvet cake) and then took a drive to see pilot mountain. it was a beautiful drive! we headed home on Sunday and took our time and made a few stops. we love road trips together and we really enjoy seeing new places together. i hope you all had a fun weekend!

here are a few links to the andy griffith landmarks in mount airy for those of you who asked and also several pictures of our trip :) enjoy!
