This place has everything, and at least 10 of them. It is worth a stroll around just to be amazed by what other people buy. I stopped to take pictures of the gigantic shark in the front whose mouth you enter to go inside the store. There is also a large pirate ship out back, I presume for taking photos.... More

My wife and I stopped to see if there was anything we wanted to take home for the grandkids, their parents or ourselves. What we found was a large store full of things we did not want, need or desire. I'm sure others buy things, otherwise they would stay in business. It was interesting to walk around to see all...

We went shopping for souvenirs. They have rows of t shirts for kids, girls, some for guys, but hardly any in 2 XL or 3 XL. Average price of t shirt was $16. Staff was super friendly and everything was more organized than I expected after reading another review.

Souvenir City is a must stop in Gulf Shores, if for nothing else than the obligatory photo in the shark's mouth! Lots of great and reasonable priced souvenirs.

This is probably my favorite souvenir store! This place is huge with a nice variety of stuff. It's a little cluttered though. I always enjoying checking everything out and of course walking in through the sharks mouth!

Everything you could possibly want to find in a fun, silly, hip shop. We love this place. They have some of the coolest, and most goofy tshirts and sweatshirts and trinkets. You can spend hours in the shop and still not see everything. We always go at least 2 times a trip and never come out empty handed.

Huge souvenir store .... local landmark. You enter walking into the sharks mouth! Lots of fun items and of course...t-shirts! We walked in and one of the employees (dark haired girl) started "twerking!" right by the front counter! Very unprofessional.. it was obvious no manager was on duty. Employees on microphone acting crazy saying they wanted to go home.... Store... More

Even if you don't need any over-priced souvenirs, make sure to stop and get a photo of the shark and the full-sized pirate ship on the backside of the store. And across the street is another souvenir store with giant purple, polka-dotted octopus on the roof. Fun stop!
