32-Foot-Tall Shark Head Entrance

Field review by the editors.

Biloxi, Mississippi

Bigger is always better, and in the world of open-mouth-shark-head-entrances to gift shops, the head at Sharkheads was among the biggest: 32 feet tall and 26 feet wide. Its size, however, was no match for Hurricane Katrina, which wiped it and the gift shop off the beach in 2005. Seven years later a new store and 32-foot-tall shark head were built at the same spot, a nightmarish toothy beacon for a new generation of flip-flops shoppers.
