Nice selection of beach items, souvenirs, homemade fudge and a very casual atmosphere! Relax in one of the rockers on the 3-sided porch for awhile! A nice touch was the staff offering small bottles of water when we entered the shop! Hospitality!

We always recommend the Lazy Gator. It is a relaxing atmosphere with decent prices and an excellent selection, from cards and beach souvenirs and tee shirts, yummy fudge to garden accessories and a Christmas section. Plus it is right cross the street from the MarshWalk.

We drove down from Myrtle Beach. I have always wanted to stop into this place. Large gift shop that has pretty much everything! And the fudge is delicious! We will definitely come back on our future trips.
