We shopped here for some local souvenirs for our kids and spent some time sitting on the porch watching the ocean. They have a huge selection of stuff to choose from. I would definitely recommend shopping here!

This place is amazing. If I could, I would literally decorate my entire house with the beautiful things they sell at this store. High-end, quality items sold at reasonable prices. Very friendly staff and can't beat the views.

Very fun store to walk around and look at the cool items they sell. Everything is priced pretty good. Great store if you just want to look around at the shells!

This is our favorite place to shop for souvenirs while we are in Galveston. They have a little of everything and a ton of t-shirts! We always get a drink and enjoy the water from lounge chairs in the deck.

I really enjoyed shopping at Murdochs, they have a lot of options to buy for home decor/souvenirs. The frozen beverages are great as well. I will visit when I am back in Galveston!
