Sightseeing – Shell Factory

I wanted to take a quick stop and visit a roadside attraction that has been part of Florida for longer than I have. A quaint little place called the Shell Factory can be found a bit south of Port Charlotte on US 41.  Driving up it reminded me of one of the many fun roadside attractions that used to litter the highways throughout Florida. So many of these old time attractions have fallen on the wayside due to interstate highways and modern attractions but this one is a must see for anyone looing for a souvinier of Florida. There is much to see here! You will see a rhino, race cars, nature center, lots of neat stuff to hop for, food and yes even seashells! For a fun nostalgic stop on your next road trip – check out this little pice of Florida fun! For more information visit their website at:

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
