Stopped at SOTB to get a keychain for mom who stopped there on her honeymoon in 1961. While very colorful and attention getting, i don't think much had changed. Typical souvenir shops had what you would expect. Not many people there the weekend after Thanksgiving....More

Very nice well maintained campground. Needed just an over night stay on our way to Florida. Office was open until 9 pm which was helpful. Got a great pull through spot with no reservations. Area was well lit and very quiet.

This place will never change. Just wanted a quick bite. Cafe closed. The other place where you order at the register was ridiculous with a long line. Not clean....so we just left.

We stopped on our way back from Myrtle Beach to show my wife who has never been here. I remember going here for a restroom break when I was a child as we traveled to Florida! Everything looks the same as I remember.

Time has passed this Roadside Attraction by. It is not well maintained and is spread out all over the place. It certainly has value for a quick Kitsch photograph but for clean bathrooms and anything else I would just go to the Love's truck stop...More

Whenever I’m traveling on I-95 in this area; I must make an obligatory stop at this famous cheesy American icon. How can anyone not do so? It’s a highly amusing place, that causes one to reflect back on the roadside attractions of yesteryear. It’s also...More

We were there in the summer and there were hardly any people there then either -- viable business though as it was open, but, very few people then. Don't know their "season" as we there only once.
