Shell Factory And Nature Park

2787 North Tamiami Trail

If you're in the mood to 'shop till you drop', you've certainly come to the right place. Not only does The Shell Factory have the largest collection of common and rare seashells, sponges, coral, fossils and sea life specimens in the world, it also sells sea and nautical-inspired lamps and night-lights, as well as gold jewelry. You can pick your own pearl & have it mounted in one of many styles of bands. Also sold at the Shell Factory are inlaid seashell toilet seats, accent pieces such as wood and ceramic sculptures, folk art birds, drift wood, hand-painted tables, wall hangings and a wide variety of mirrors, palm tree wine glasses, books and maps, cards and stationery, nautical-motif gifts and accent pieces, candles, magnets and key chains. There are also decorations for every holiday imaginable, including a large Christmas store.

The Shell Factory has a newly renovated Nature Park, which features a Petting Zoo, Environmental Education Center and a Botanical Trail and Garden. The primary focus is to provide an opportunity for the general public to experience and learn about different plants and wildlife found within the various ecosystems throughout the world. Special emphasis has been placed on those ecosystems unique to Florida. A variety of activities, exhibits and programs will, in most cases, offer individuals and groups a hands-on educational experience.
