South of the Border, SC's 'ONE Tourist Trap You're Missing Out On'

The Huffington Post has put together a list of 'The ONE Tourist Trap You're Missing Out On In Each U.S. State' and the one and only South of the Border made their list. You would be hard pressed to drive on any South Carolina highway/interstate and not spot a billboard for South of the Border, which is located on Interstate 95 and US Highway 301/501 between Dillon, South Carolina and Rowland, North Carolina and has been a roadside staple since 1949.

Part rest stop, part motel, part Tex-Mex-themed amusement park... whatever this compound on the highway is, it's awesome. Check out the largest indoor reptile exhibit in the U.S. 

Sure we have lots of beautiful beaches, historic landmarks, and various amusements throughout the state, but we're the only state in the union to have South of the Border.

Think there is a better tourist trap in SC? Let us know below.
