If you want to buy a shell lamp or any other item made from mollusks to remember your Florida travels, The Shell Factory is the place to go. There are over five-million shell-type articles from toothbrushes to mirrors, but that's a small detail in the larger complex. In addition to the shell shop, visitors can see the 'nature park', which includes both live animals as well as a taxidermy room and a mini-military museum. Guests can even feed alligators in the pen as well as see exotic birds in the aviary.
