Mount Airy, North Carolina is the birthplace of Andy Griffith and is thought to have been the inspiration behind Mayberry, the fictional town made popular in The Andy Griffith Show in the 1960s.

The town celebrates its fame with signs, recreations, and cardboard cut outs of Mr. Griffith throughout the town. There’s even a small Andy Griffith Museum & Collection that houses memorabilia from his life and the television show. (Though, no photography is allowed in the museum.)
