Whether you want to shop, eat or just enjoy seeing beautifully restored historic buildings, this section of Galveston is really worth seeing. Be advised that parking is not free. You must get a ticket from the pay machine on most corers and leave the ticket in a visible spot on the driver's side. Patrols are frequent.

This place was where you wanted to be from Thu-Sat. We enjoyed this area..WIth its bars and one or two dance clubs it was pretty feasible for our accommodations. We closed this area every night we went. The hospitality of the local population was OUTSTANDING!! The people are very friendly and when they find out you are from out of town. They kind of go out of there way to make sure you are having a great time... I will be going here again... Thanks Galveston!!

Always fun to walk around the Strand during the day and visit the shops. During the evening it comes alive with music. Feels like a mild version of Bourbon street in New Orleans.

The only thing I didnt like is the parking situation with paying on a corner machine and meter people coming around constantly trying to see who is getting the next ticket. Other than that this place is pretty cool. There is a pirate museum and a haunted house and a giant chess set and a snow machine. There stores are pretty cool too.
