We went down to the DMZ from the North Side. If you've ever been to the DMZ from the South, you know that they have a long list of rules regarding what you can or can't do. Not so from the North. They give you beer, they let you take photos of anything you want, you can explore quite a bit. Then you go stay in a hotel by the border. All around good time.
