  1. Default Raleigh to Columbia, SC

    Last week I had the opportunity to drive a bit of I-95 enroute to Columbia SC -- the first time I had ever seen "South of the Border." Wow, what a tourist trap! I mean that in the BEST way, of course... We didn't stop, but I haven't seen anything like that since Wall Drug or Bowlin's Running Indian, but both of those are/were on a smaller scale.

    So my next thought is, could it have been worth a stop? Did I miss anything wonderful by breezing past at 70? I was on a short schedule and had to make the plane home with no time to spare, but maybe next time, depending on what you all have to say about it. Bob

    Default Pedro

    Just an opinion, but I would say NO, you didn't miss anything unless you like kiddie stuff and beans necklaces:o) I went there as a young teenager, I enjoyed it at the time, it's a great place for kids, but I don't think I would like it as much as an adult... Looks more like a tourist trap to me. I still enjoy the trillions road signs though, especially the one that says "come fill your trunque with Pedro's junque" (or something like that:o)

    Default It is Worth a stop

    If you like roadstop Americana -- it is worth a stop. I am not overly fond of touristy things, but I always make a point of stopping.

    A road tripping couple that are frequenty posters on this forum always makes a point of staying overnight in the bridal suite -- they love it.
