If you have never heard of South of the Border then you have not paid much attention to the billboards on I-95. The story goes that when the interstate was being built someone was able to convince the government to drop an exchange off here just below the South Carolina border - hence the name. This place has a Mexican theme. There is a sombrero that is about 30 stories tall that allows you a very good view of SOB (South of the Border abbreviation folks). It costs a dollar person for the elevator ride.
Over the years this place has added more hotel rooms, more shops and eateries. There is a mini golf range, a toilet place for pets, a giant fireworks store, a hat store, a leather store, and many other stores carrying South of the Border Souvenirs. Of course there are the many photo opportunities with the statues scattered about the place. You can even pose between the tall Pedro's legs.
The good thing is that the food is reasonably priced here as well. There is Pedro's diner with low prices. There is also Pedro's steakhouse where the prices go up. Personally I stick with the diner.
So if the kids are screaming and the family is tired, stop here for a short bit and collect a few photo memories or souvenirs.
