Well, you have to go to The Stand if you are in Galveson! Just stroll up and down to the shops and enjoy some food (don't forget Post Office Street as well....) and the shopping is so much fun. Very near the Cruise Terminal - just one block off.

Every once in a while we come to Galveston just to enjoy the strand. It is a great Historic District with lots of cool places to eat and shop. There are plenty of places to park and parking on Sundays is free. If you have been to Galveston, but have never explored the Strand then it's definitely something you should consider next time. They often have festivals and parades which are definitely worth your time. Enjoy!

Wandered around here the morning of our cruise out of Galveston before our departure. We loved the area and it is on it's way back after the hurricanes. Ate at a little restaurant on the Strand with outside dinning and it was great!

Have a stroll down the strand and shop the eclectic stores and have a meal or drink in one of the many small bars.

the strand could be a great venue. the merchants just dont get enough business to sustain a fabulous inventoryl its always a little stale and old. there are however, some old timers - like the la kings candy store that is iconic and always a treat..
