    Various: Overpriced Souvenirs

    by Basaic Written May 27, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like most beach resort towns there are many souvenir shops all along the main street in town. They have basically the same souvenirs too. Swimsuits that don't leave much to the imagination, T-shirts with slogans about sex, drugs or alcohol (or all of the above), shot glasses and similar items. One shop did have a collection of "Duck Dynasty" shirts. Also, like the shops in all resort towns, the prices are quite high. I did like the shark on the first store though!

    What to pay: Too much!

    Seven Seas: Gift Shops

    by ctietbohl Written Mar 2, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop has a large quantity and better quality of different items. They have a lot of religious items, items made of sea shells, knick-knacks, wooden signs, etc

    What to buy: This shop is more of a gift shop than island beachwear and toy store. Iron on decal shirts and wave boards are in other shops.

    Beach Mania: Shop, Don't Steal!!!

    by Stephen-KarenConn Written Apr 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beach Mania is only one of numerous gift shops which can be found all up and down Padre Blvd. I couldn't resist taking a picture of this one because of the unusual message on it's signboard. Surely it couldn't have been inspired by any of the thousands of spring-breakers who were in town!

    We bought a refrigerator magnet here, and also visited a couple of the other gift shops. All had very similar offerings of T-shirts, shells, sunglasses and surfboards.

    What to buy: Junk and other necessities.

    What to pay: Because there are so many gift shops the prices tend to be competitive.

    Steal Now, Pay Later!!!
