Walk into Mouth of Giant Shark

Hard to miss as you come into town. The shop is like any other, but the shark entrance is pretty cool.

Big Shark is Store Entrance

There are a lot of beach-themed cheap souvenir shops in South Padre Island, but one of the first you come across has a very large shark out front. You have to walk in the shark's mouth to go into the store. Great photo op!
