Huge Shark False Entrance

Field review by the editors.

Port Aransas, Texas

Seeming to have slid too far under the Destination Beach and Surf entrance overhang, a 50-foot-long fiberglass shark offers shoppers two ways to get into the store: one through the traditional doors, which open beneath the shark's raised tail; the other off to one side, where the shark head sticks out into the parking lot. Walk into the shark's mouth and down its throat!
