The Strand Area is interesting as it gives a view of Old town Galveaston. There are many
shops and bars. A fun place to spend a day. Plenty of dining and sights to see, especially
near the waterfront. Really liked Wiille G's for dinner.

We enjoyed many hours at the ART ober FEST before visiting the Strand, and purchasing many presents for family and friends. Every store had something, or many special things making it hard to decide what to buy. We enjoyed the tranquil street atmosphere very much.

Just enough shops and stores to cover them in one days time. No real standouts. Lots of eateries as well. Stores close early on week nights, so make it a day time trip.

I take a trip to Galveston at least once to twice a year and always try to make it down to the strand. This time we took a carriage ride which was very enjoyable and educating as well. Every time I explore this area of Galveston I always see something new and interesting that will bring me back. Love the laid back attitudes as well as the great shops.
