I have to go to the Gay Dolphin EVERY TIME I go to the beach. WE go once or twice a year. I love to look at the wall of name tags & all of the treasures they harbor. No trip is complete without it!

Never seen anything like this before. Not your typical chain beach store. Every nook and cranny is filled with treasures on multiple levels. Prices reasonable as well.

Response from Dove G |
The gay dolphin has a parking lot that is behind the ripley haunted attraction. During the summer there is an all day fee, but during the winter months it is free. Yes, they have a parking lot.
