We went here to see the buldings & do some shopping ..not much buying but it;s fun to look. This was very much like shopping in a Fla beach town ..the Candy shop was special and they have a good Xmas shop but most of the clothing shops are the same as any beach town..only diffrence is namedrops say Galveston rather than Clearwater beach. One thing I noticed is the sidewalks are not wheelchair accesable as they have steps at every crosswalk.

Love all the shops! They are still rebuilding and remodeling from Ike, so some shops are still not open. Some are new and improved!

this is alot of fun...alot of shopping and bars . We stayed by the seawall and we wished we would have stayed closer to the strand because there is far more to do here than on the seawall. We had a blast and would recommend you check this out

We went down here for a couple of afternoons. They have some neat shops down there. Went into a christmas store and got some decorations. The candy shops down there are amazing. We just so happened to be there for Art-ober fest, a nice art's festival. Overall, i fell it's worth a look
