Shell World of Texas
It's easy to start a shell collection on a beach vacation, but sometimes it's hard to stop! Shell obsessives may find some missing gems or pick up some seaside curios for the folks back home at Shell World of Texas in Aransas Pass. Be sure to ask proprietor Robert Branch about his stock of rare coral and giant clamshells. He'll tell you a few tales – maybe even a few tall ones about notorious pirate Jean Lafitte and his buried treasure from centuries ago. Either way, you've stumbled on a local treasure. Just look for the lovely mermaid holding a tray of seashells atop this friendly, bright orange gift shop, stop in and say, "Shello!"
