South of the Border

IMG_0308On our way back from the shuttle launch we stayed the night at Pedro’s South of the Border. A roadside attraction in South Carolina that proclaims its locations on billboards hundreds of miles away. My favorite was “Start screaming now kids! (They’ll stop)“. The three of us (all men) went into the lobby of Pedro’s Pleasure Dome (their hotel) to get a room for the night. After some questionable looks we got our room. It was straight out of the 70s. Nothing had changed. It was extremely surreal being there in the early morning. None of the rides were open, the giant stores were empty.

If I ever go back there, I will make sure to bring a tent. I heard they have a camping ground you can stay at. Without a doubt it is worth stopping at. Try to get there when it’s hopping though.
