What a blast! Beads thrown everywhere. Live music...beer and hurricanes...laughter and smiles. Am I sure I didn't end up in New Orleans instead?

I love Galveston and of course, the strand! The businesses are eclectic and the whole area great! I always go exploring and end up at the vintage erasure shop, "Somewhere In Time".

This place is listed in the historical locale for Galveston, TX. It has a lot of trinket stores selling imitation and low quality imported stuffs. Some of the local restaurants, such as Noni Tony was good.

The Strand is a great place to walk off all the wonderful food of Galveston. It has clothing shops, antique shops, touristy shops, bars, & restaurants. They even allow drinking along this street. The historic buildings are nice to look at and only a short distance to other attractions.

The Strand is always busy, but walking through is nice, and the smells from all the shops are great. Awesome place to people watch while you grab a bite to eat. You can also see the cruise ships.

Soak in the salt air and golden Victorian age of galveston 's past on the strand. Giant raise ships hover in the harbor while good music and cold beer wafts from door frames . A must island experience
