Retro Florida Souvenirs and Oranges
Even before carry-on luggage restrictions, it was difficult to travel with a crate of oranges, but for tourists visiting Florida, they were the must-have souvenir. Flamingo Groves was one of the pioneers in shipping fruit to the citrus-hungry, and while today you can order fruit online, you can also go right to the source in Dania Beach, close to the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport. Part fruit stand, and part souvenir shop, Alex's Flamingo Groves & Gift Shop has all manner of shell, flamingo, and beach glass paraphernalia, in all their tacky glory. If all that Florida kitsch doesn't dazzle you, order a glass of fresh-squeezed juice and decide how many pounds of oranges you'll ship home.
