Fodor's Review

This popular costume store first opened in Cuba in the 1920s; the exiled owners reopened it here in the 1970s. They have cartoon costumes, rock star costumes, pet costumes, couples costumes, you name it. If you come any time near Halloween, expect to stand in line just to enter the tiny store. Wooden, life-sized costume cut-outs in the parking lot make for great photo ops.
