Souvenir City
Biloxi, MS
Waves Surf and Sport
Surf City, NC
When Souvenir City was sold in 1983, the new owners added a giant alligator above the entrance and renamed the store Souvenir City: Gators. The store was virtually demolished by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The store and gator head were rebuilt and the business reopened in 2009. This gator head is bigger and serves as the entrance to the store. For more, see this website. [map]

The Waves Surf and Sport shop features a giant gator mouth entrance. I think this statue might have been built by Bob Duato. [map]
