This shop in the Cocoa Village had some wonderful ideas for pet gifts. Our favorite was the little sun hat we got for our dog . He seemed to enjoy it too.They had a nice selection of collars and leashes too! Worth a visit.
What to pay: A little expensive.
Crystal, lace, and linen could define this store . Such fun to browse around and perfect if you want to treat yourself or buy a special gift. Its definately pricey though at $500.00 for a pair of simple window sheers. Wonderful things like candles and crystal lamps.
Harvey's started as a fruit stand in 1929. Now that's before my time but I remember stopping for the delicious sweet " Florida " oranges back in the 70 's . They also have wonderful jams and jellies but the best is the fresh squeezed orange juice. You are greeted at the door with an ice cold sample glass. We bought some of everything , if you want they'll ship too.
What to pay: Prices are pretty reasonable and the quality is top notch.
There are lots of unique and interesting shps in the Historic Village area of Cocoa . This little shop had some lovely summery clothes and was fun to poke around in even if you weren't on a big buying spree.
What to buy: Nice cotton shirts.
What to pay: Maybe a tad expensive.
Stumped on what to bring home to my husband for a souvenir from Orlando, Patty suggested that we stop by Ron Jon's in Cocoa Beach so I could buy him something without a Disney character on it. In retrospect I should have purchased that Grumpy tshirt I was thinking of buying him.....
The Cocoa Beach location of Ron Jon's is open 24 hours a day and there is 52,000 square feet and 2 floors of surfer shopping, surfboards and equipment for the serious surfer and souvenirs ranging from hats, tshirts, keychains, you name it, they have the Ron Jon logo printed on it!
What to buy: Ron Jon is not a cheap place to buy souvenirs but the tshirts and hats were good quality
Ron Jon's is a famous surf shop that sells not only surfing gear but beach clothing, shoes, sandals and gift items. The store boasts that they have 2 million people a year visit their store. The store never closes--they are open 24 hours a day (just like the beach). When you walk into the store, all 52,000 square feet of it, is a bit overwhelming to see all sorts of items filling every square inch of the shop. Shoes, sandals, t-shirts, beach cover ups, dresses, sweats and gift items galore.
Ron Jon Surf Shop also has locations in Georgia, Maimi, Fort Lauderdale and California.
What to buy: There was so much to see but I found a really cool pink surfer girl thermal coffee cup for a friend for less than $9 dollars. I also found a really cool pair of sweatpants but I refrained from purchasing them (I really wanted them though so I found their website but the pants were $6.00 more on line than in the store so again, I refrained from purchasing them.) If you ever have been to Hilo Hattie's in Hawai'i you will find many items that are similar but really Hilo Hattie's is more about the Hawaian clothing and Ron Jon's is more about clothes for water sports.
It's the unique place in which you can buy your own dinausaur skeleton.
But there is no secret. The reproductions and casts are inexpensive but the prices of true fossils skyrocket. May be excepted the trilobites and the belemites, but there were so common during some hundreds million years...
What to buy: A T-Rex skull to put in your bedroom to have nce dreams.
Or a trilobite in order to be sure there will be always something older than oneself at home.
I bought nothing but I found several cheap DVD in the adjacent store.
What to pay: Expensive : there is no competitor within 1000 miles.
What a crazy store open 24 H a day, like the beach (says the advertisement).
If you whish to buy a bathing suit or a surf board at midnight.
It deserves a visit even if you are like me not a surf adicted.
If your looking for the latest fashion in beach stuff, this is your spot, swim suits, sun glasses, towels, and so much more. The price are about average for beach shops. I'm sure you will be able to find what your looking for here if it has any thing to do with the beach.
