Tourist Trap: South Carolina is South of the Border?
Contrary to its name, South of the Border is not a rest stop that hugs an international crossing point -- unless you consider the passage from North Carolina to South Carolina a national divide. Founded in 1950 as a beer stand, the roadside attraction now boasts a fireworks store, souvenir kiosks and an admirably frightening collection of plaster statuary.
It strikes us as the kind of attraction that appears in the dreams of 5-year-olds (and the nightmares of their parents, who will be forced to stop or endure the unending whine). In this video, the site sucks out the joy in a whole carload of Spring Breakers.
Thanks to YouTube user rcscribner, who is our hero. Hope the rest of your spring break went better than this.
