Off the I-95, but I think a very worthwhile detour (made it 2 years ago) is the Okefenokee Swamp.


We went there and it was fantastic. On the way back to the I-95, and I think just the other side of Exit 6, had a great BBQ at a shack called The GA pig, described in Eat Your Way Across the USA as an attraction all hunger travelers along I-95 in Gerogia need to know about. Pork slow-cooked over hickory wood, mmmm. Picnic tables inside and out the pine-shaded rustic shack. A must stop on the I-95 for us.

In S.C. on the I-95 the same book recommends the Summerton Diner, exit 108, for breakfast or lunch -- good pancakes, sausage, grits, etc or fried chicken and vegetables.

Or, if you take HWY 17, Duke's BBQ in Ridgeland, but I think that is open only Thursday, Fri., Sat. Cafeteria style.

If you want more I-95 restaurants from this book let me know. (and if you are going HW17 or not). I've never gone wrong using it.
