Friday's Features - South Carolina Attractions
As most of y'all probably know, I absolutely love! It has so many interesting tidbits of knowledge about small-town attractions all over the country and Canada. Today, instead of talking about one place in particular, I am going to talk about South Carolina and some of it's crazy places.

First on our blogstop is the World's Largest Kid in Columbia, SC. Seems as if this is a children's hands-on museum type attraction where people can explore the human body to their heart's content. Roadside America says you can walk through the statue's heart, brain, and slide down his intestines. Hmmm.

For the adults reading, you might want to go to Rock Hill, SC. and see the four bronze Civitas statues (well-endowed women) who lost their nipples. Go read and you'll understand.

Remember the movie, Radio? Well, in Anderson, SC. you'll find a real-life statue of James Robert "Radio" Kennedy, the man who inspired the movie.

Ooo, here's one. If you like bees, you'll love this place in Cottageville, SC. It's called Bee City Honeybee Farm & Petting Zoo. According to, the brochure says, "See real working beehives set up in the format of a small rural American city. The hives represent businesses such as: Glory Bee Church, a BP station, etc." That's just too danged cute if you ask me.

Known by weary travelers of I-95 for many years, South of the Border , near Dillion, SC. offers a taste of Mexico in the middle of the rural South. Souvenirs abound and Pedro (SOB's mascot) is calling your name! Check out the Sombrero Tower and eat at one of the many restaurants before you head back out to the freeway.

And lastly, back in Columbia, SC., you can see a bronze statue of George Washington that was damaged intentionally by Union forces during the Civil War. According to Roadside America, "the South has preserved this vandalism as proof of Yankee evil". How quaint.

There is more on Roadside America to read and visit. Not just about South Carolina, but about the other 49 states and Canadian provinces. I believe that everyone ought to take a driving trip/vacation around their part of America just to see what they can see. Sometimes it's amusing, odd, or just plain stupid, but at least you'll have had a good time.

Drive on America!

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
