News broke Tuesday that legendary actor Andy Griffith, who was launched to fame on "The Andy Griffith Show" in the 1960s as the kindly sheriff and doting dad, had died at 86.
About 90 minutes northeast of the Twin Cities, you can indulge in a little Mayberry nostalgia. The Taylor Home Inn in Clear Lake, Wis., provides guests with a taste of the show. The inn boasts a faithful recreation of the show's iconic house, including Aunt Bee's kitchen, Opie's bedroom and a generous front porch where guests are encouraged to "sit, play the guitar, count cars, and watch the world go by."
Griffith died at his island home in North Carolina, CNN reported.
The show was also a launching pad for child actor-turned director Ron Howard, who played Griffith's son, Opie.
