Nice place to do a break and breath some fresh air. You can see pintoresque scenarios of the wildlands, and you can go for a walk in the nature.

This is the spot to visit just after you arrive in Mount Airy. The individuals were more than willing to help guide us and they were very outgoing. "More than just here's our brochure." The people working here love their town and it shows.
