“GREAT T Shirt Shops Open Even After Dark”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The stores sometimes close when things slow down.........the only draw back. Wish the Peanut Factory would open back up. I found really nice T shirts 4/$20 AMAZING! Love the Brick Streets and Fun places to stop & shop!

“The Shops”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Strand is a very good place to spend time browsing through all of the shops. Everything there is something a little different. naturally, being on the Gulf of Mexico one would expect sea shore items to purchase. The shopkeepers are as friendly a lot as you will find anywhere.

“Fun way to spend the afternoon”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Our family visited Galveston Island last weekend. We spent several hours after lunch shopping on the Strand. We had a good time. Most of the stores had very commercial items that you can find everywhere. It was a nice change of pace, though. People watching was fun. Lots of diversity.
