Andy Taylor: Well, as Mark Twain said, everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it.
Floyd Lawson: Did he say that?
Andy Taylor: Mm-hmm.
Floyd Lawson: I thought Calvin Coolidge said that.
Andy Taylor: No, no Floyd, Calvin Coolidge didn't say that.
Floyd Lawson: What'd Calvin Coolidge say?

This time of year, it may be warm one day and snowing the next. Even in cold weather, there is so much fun to be had in and around Mount Airy.

If you are looking for indoor activities, Mount Airy offers something for everyone. We have yoga, skating, bowling, movies and more. 

If a little nip in the air doesn't bother you, check out one of our many greenways and trails. This is great way to help your kids or dogs get some of their energy out or to just enjoy some peace and quiet to yourself. 

Sometimes people prefer to warm up from the inside out. If that's more your style, we have you covered. In Mount Airy and the surrounding area, there are many award-winning wineries in addition to breweries and distilleries.
