Wiki and I are always looking for quick getaways and we were to a point that we've visited just about everywhere within a two hour span. We were gonna go to the beach but it was overcast and in a quick(this never happens in my house)decision we decided to meander over to Mt Airy or as the rest of the world refers to it as..."Mayberry" Andy Griffith land. It was the quickest 2 hour drive I can remember. We were there for two days and boredom was never an option. I loved this place! The downtown area is so quaint and sweet. We walked around and had lunch then visited a few wineries...Here are a few of our stops.
|Andy keeping a look out, where's Barney?|
|Step on up to Floyd's chair|
Then we stopped for lunch at a deli and winery...Delish!
|This place was awesome, it was in the middle of downtown and they had live music at night. Plus, 8 wines for $5?!|
They also serve beer which made Wiki very happy. It had no effect on me whatsoever. other than I loved these glasses...and now own them. Whoop.
Love the view as the sun sets.
I cannot say enough great things about this area. It is easily accessible from almost any area in North Carolina. and it is quick jaunt off of 77 to 52 from Virginia and West Virginia. The Yadkin Valley is home to over 30 wineries and breweries.
We ate dinner in downtown Mt. Airy at Trio and having eaten at some of the most famous restaurants and ones highly rated all over this country...I can firmly say that both times we have eaten there were in my top ten meals. Podunk town don't play.
