There are several blocks of fun shops and places to eat. This is old downtown Galveston with many interesting old buildings.

I was totally surprised by my first visit here, the incredible historical buildings-- grandeur and size-- only states that this community of Galveston has had an important life in gulf history. Despite the brunt of many storms over the decades, many extraordinary structures remain. The port is bustling with cruise ships, commerce especially energy. I will return and spend more time on the Strand investigating it and the downtown area.

Lots of interesting little shops. Storekeepers very friendly. Many eateries on the Strand and near by. Only problem is the stairs, due to past flooding every store has stairs (some have wheelchair lifts). As a senior my poor knees were worn out.

The summer is really a hot time to walk down the strand; however, we cannot always pick our times. I enjoyed the people, the shops and the antiques shops just off the strand area. Fall is a great time!
