A Bonus Episode of Away Message: Moving to Mayberry
What do outsiders see when they look at North Carolina? Host Jeremy Markovich turns to The Andy Griffith Show for answers, and talks to former actress Betty Lynn who worked on the series, then moved to the real-life town that the fictional Mayberry was based on.

The sprawling vineyards and wide-open skies that stretch for miles across seven North Carolina counties offer relaxing getaways — not to mention some of the state’s finest wines — for Sunday drivers aching to escape the rush of city life.
