This impressively kitschy emporium dedicated to all things shell related wears many other hats! This isn’t just the world’s largest seashell shop, there are beach clothes, t-shirts, toys, jewelry and a huge selection of pearls (10am-6pm). Also located on the property is a Nature Park with over 400 animals, birds, reptiles and fish (10am-5pm), Scallywags Fun Park with Bumper Boats, a Zip-Line, Paddle Boats and Mini-Golf (10am-5pm). The onsite restaurant is undergoing a transformation and will soon be known as The Southern Grill and Event Center (11am-8pm), outside bars with daily entertainment, open later.  The entire property (except the Nature Park) is dog friendly.  It’s quirky as all get-out and just as much fun!
