Found the perfect New Years Eve outfit at Tina's. Saleswomen were amazing. Also found great reasonable priced jewelry and some great Christmas presents at the Jewel Garden. Then for a snack across the street from these 2 stores is a candy place that makes wonderful caramel apples. We park, go to these 3 stores and go. Love it.

I used to work on the strand. Mind your parking. Nice place to spend the day and shop or eat. I used to meet the most interesting people while working.

Four of us ladies took our 85 yr old Aunt CJ to the Strand during her recent visit to Galveston. We had an awesome time. Sidewalks were easy for her to maneuver and she especially enjoyed the Admirality Shop, Head to Footsies, Tina's, and Gracies. Merchandise in the these stores is quality and staff very friendly. We ate lunch at a little place in that area (can't remember the name), but it was tucked back off the street, and well worth the stop. The owner was very accommodating and the food excellent. The Strand is a "must See/do" for anyone visiting Galveston. I have lived here full-time (IBC) since 2005 and love any occasion to visit the Strand.

We visited in the evening and during a Saturday morning. Definately worth going up one side and down the other. Lots of shops, restaurants, and history. Really enjoyed it at both times of trhe day.

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.
