If you have every driven along I-95 southbound from North Carolina or northbound from South Carolina, then you have probably seen those colorful billboards advertising South of the Border. This tourist attraction has been around for fifty years and is still going. Pedro looms over the area, as well as little Pedros, fat flamingos, sombrero-wearing dinosaurs and giant chickens. Souvenirs are cheap and plentiful. And if one day isn’t enough, they offer a motel, campground and truck-stop. South of the Border lies between the border of North and South Carolina.
