Nice area to stay, still work getting done. Lot of entertainment, shops, eating ... can be quite quiet at times but generally a good area to stay.

An enjoyable place to go stroll around, just make sure to keep tabs on your parking meter. It is not immediately obvious but parking is NOT free anywhere!

The Strand is getting much better at mixing the stores, some stores coming in now are more fine clothing and homewares and not just rows and rows of vacation t-shirts. Also with the addition of the Pier21 restaurants and activities, it now can be its own vacation destination without having to go to the beach every day.

I found The Strand to be beautiful with the old buildings. I have to say, it put the small town I am from to shame LOL Found a great souvenier shop (just cannot remember the name of it) and was very impressed with the prices. I was expecting it to be expensive but to me they were just right. Got some great souveniers. Also, La King Confectionery is great to visit! Friendly and welcoming! And the salt water taffy is delicious!
