Titusville, Florida: Large Shrimps with Top Hats

"Royal Red Shrimp," who wear white gloves, bow ties, and top hats, are the cartoon mascots of a restaurant that's been open since 1983. Statues of the shrimp, roughly four feet tall, populate the grounds, and there's a photo-op bench where you can sit next to several of them.
Address:
1475 Garden St., Titusville, FL
Directions:
Outside the Dixie Crossroads seafood restaurant. I-95 exit 220. Drive east on Hwy 406 for two miles. One the right, just after the flower shop, is the restaurant entrance with its Royal Red Shrimp guards. The photo op with the shrimp and bench is about a hundred feet back into the parking lot, next to the entrance canopy that shelters tour busses when they unload.
