Visitor Tips and News About South Of The Border
Sombrero Observation Tower
The 200-foot-high Sombrero Observation Tower is the main landmark of South of the Border, an amazing collection of restaurants, amusements, shops, gas stations, and restrooms in a unique and wacky highway oasis. And it truly is just south of the North Carolina - South Carolina border.[Richard Stockman, 02/20/2015]
South of the Border
After passing this for years we decided to stop with our two kids (now in their twenties). It was fun buying some kitschy junk in the shops, but there was not much else to do. No one was riding the rides, golfing, or eating for that matter. Several of the buildings are closed. A little disappointing that it's in such bad shape.[LK, 07/18/2014]
