Rev is so much fun. He knows Southport and enjoys showing you around. We also enjoyed the evening at Doc Meridians Winery listening to Rev sing. He has some serious talent. We had a great time.

Toured the historic area of Southport in open air electric car. Guide was humorous and very informative. A most enjoyable way to learn and I was surprised about all the movies made there. 45 minute ride for $10. Call for a reservation.
