Day Trip: Go back in time to Andy Griffith’s Mayberry

I remember laying on my parent’s bed watching reruns of the “The Andy Griffith Show” on their nine-inch black and white television. Don Knotts’ antics as Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife made him my favorite character. It was because of this memory that I jumped at the chance to visit the newly renovated Andy Griffith Museum in Mount Airy, just two hours from Charlotte.
