“Nice walk.”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

We went on a Friday and the weekend crown hadn't hit yet. It was nice walking up and down the streets, and into the different shops.

“BEST SHOPPING! And you can you drink:)”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

The Strand is in my heart forever, my sister and I spent 1 full day down at the Strand, along with an every other day visit as well. The stores, the atmosphere, the people, everything about it makes it a fantastic and unique shopping experience. The stores was incredible and most of them very reasonably priced. Go to Yola's. grab a cold beer and sit and people watch. That is after you shop this store, some of the most amazing and cheapest finds on the Strand. And bonus..you can drink all over :) So grab a cold one and have a day at the Strand!

“We loved La Kings :)”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This was worth the drive to the strand for this shop! We bought the taffy and gummy candies and tried the shakes, malts, and floats! The service here was wonderful and the place was busy even at 10:30am :)
