Think about the small towns you've visited in your time, and you might notice that they all have something in common: one well-known resident who's a source of great community pride. Siler City's is actress Frances Bavier, who holds a special place in the hearts of classic television fans for her role as Aunt Bee on "The Andy Griffith Show." Aunt Bee's fictional home, Maberry, represents all that is wholesome and endearing in a small, rural town in North Carolina. And so does Siler City, a real-life Maberry waiting to welcome you into the embrace of its rolling hills and the charms of its nostalgic main street. Is that a bare-footed boy running to the creek with his fishing pole? And is that the local sheriff you hear whistling and greeting everyone by name? Hotels in Siler City, NC, plant you in the midst of this sentimental scene.
Step outside one of the Siler City, NC hotels to take a leisurely stroll around the small town and you'll feel like you've stepped into the America of yesteryear. Here, uncrowded rows of flat brick buildings, adorned by striped awnings and weather-worn, painted signs, are the genuine version of the southern country hamlet you've seen countless times on the screen. Hand-painted murals depict scenes of rural life: a horse-drawn cart on a dirt-swept street just like the one you're strolling along today, or the cheerful scene of neighbors greeting each other inside the general store. Step inside the Farmer's Alliance Store, which has served Siler City for more than 120 years, and see that mural come to life. Here you can purchase wares from candy canes to cowboy hats, beekeeping equipment to bib overalls, and cheeses cut from the wheel. Arrange Siler City rental cars and cruise back into the 21st century, where the best hotels in Charlotte are an easy drive away.
