Surf City, North Carolina: Souvenir Shop GatorA large souvenir shop must be entered through the open jaws of an immense alligator. Of recent vintage, and well done.
Visitor Tips and News About Souvenir Shop Gator
Here's another view of the tourist-devouring gator souvenir shop in Surf City, called Waves Surf and Sport.[Lucy, 07/19/2009]
Near Surf City, I saw a variation on the old enter-the-souvenir-shop-through-the-shark's-mouth gag. This one has souvenir seekers enter through an alligator's jaws. Obviously not as big as Swampy or the Kissimmee Gator, but maybe this is the 3rd largest gator? It looks new, but there were also some closed and battered attractions nearby, like a decrepit pirate-themed miniature golf course.[Dean Jeffrey, 01/16/2005]
