Mount Airy, North Carolina

Stop 7:

Mount Airy

Once you’ve had your fill of palatial opulence and are ready to once again come down to earth, head about 2½ hours east of the Biltmore to Mount Airy, North Carolina. Or, as most of the country refers to it, “Mayberry.” That’s because Mount Airy was the boyhood home of Andy Griffith, who based his shows (The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry R.F.D.) on this region. Be sure to stop by the Snappy Lunch for a pork chop sandwich while you’re in town. While it may have its origins as a small-town diner, it was raved about by Gourmet Magazine.
