The Lazy Gator appears to be this cute little roadside boutique. Once inside, this shop goes on for days! It's HUGE inside! Lots of cute things to buy-Vera Bradley pieces, jewelry, beach decor, etc. It's the perfect place to visit to pick up vacation trinkets. Prices are reasonable, too!

The Lazy Gator is a wonderful stop to shop. The staff were all friendly. They allow free parking to access the marsh walk. Bought some wind chimes and fudge. Excellent! Will make that a frequent stop.
