Review of Mount Airy, North Carolina

Mayberry Not What You Think
Star Rating - 2/15/2012
Although the previous comment is almost 5 years old, what was mentioned is pretty true. Crime has worsened, in particular drug activity, with a very active market in prescription drugs. So, if you're a junkie, pill popper, or disability seeker this is the place for you! On the other hand, downtown is small but charming, and most people are very friendly. Housing is available, but of suboptimal quality - no one can afford to upgrade. Employment is sparse. Just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway is a saving grace.
