South of the Border

Both my hubby and I made several trips up and down I-95 between DC and Florida as kids. On our first road trip south, we lamented that no matter how much we begged, our parents would never stop there.

“It’s a tourist trap!”, ” It’s so tacky!” They’d claim, which were the same exact arguements for pulling over.

So of course, now that we have kids, we stop every time we pass it. And that’s a lot, since most of my In-laws live in Georgia. I love it’s gaudiness, its horrid cultural insensitivity, the fact that its completely run down, and that only a third of the ‘attractions’ are actually ever open.  Every bit of the place oozes with character.  Plus the hotel is cheap and it has a cool indoor pool.
