If you're looking for something different, they've got it at Souvenir City, the first gift shop to open in Gulf Shores in 1956! Excellent choices, fantastic airbrush items, anything "beachy" - it's there! Just look for the shark's mouth :)

Crowded and overpriced. Typical souvenir store with cool shark mouth entrance. Checkout service was not friendly. Parking is tight.

We went here because of the shark on the front of the buildind, have to admit it is an excellent way to bring in customers. Once inside the staff is not personable not helpful. The store was under stalker with some very outdated merchandise.
