I enjoyed growing up in Mount Airy. Crime was low in the city, cost of living was low. The people were nice, and it was in close proximity to the mountains and Winston Salem.

The hiking and outdoor activities available were great. The parkway is close by, as well as multiple rivers and creeks. Also has a lot of golf courses.
