For shopping in Galveston there is no more better place than on The Strand, clothing shops, artsy items and the oldest candy store in the state. Check it out.

Always a pleasurable walk through the shops along the Strand the you take the wife and stay at the San Louis. Many of the shops we like to visit: the Jewel Garden, Gracie's, the Bungalow, the Admiralty, all different and all unique.

We are at Fudruckers. There are quite a few shops in the old buildings. The Haberdashery, Kings Confectionary, spices, and the artist selling tribal masks. Great times

Numerous restaurants, pubs, and a beef jerky outlet, how can you go wrong. Really cool variety of shops and eating/drinking places. An easy walk in the park...

The street is nice for a quick visit. If you need some touristy stuff this is definitely where to get it. Noticed a few decent looking restaurants but didn't eat.

Some shops were the usual junky souvenirs​, but some were above average. Unfortunately quite a few of the storefronts are vacant. Interesting to see how they've adjusted to the history of flooding by making most of the shops a few steps up from street level.

Ditto...didn't see any golf cart tours, just the horse and carriage tour. Not sure the price on that, but it looked like there was a sign on one of the corners.
