We had so much fun as a family walking around the strand of Galveston! 4 picky teens, a 7 year old and 5 adults! We all found things that fascinated us and didn't have to stay all together if we didn't want to. There are plenty of shops to cater to all tastes!! The confectionary is by far a MUST!!!!

It was a typical tourist street, many shops and most of them sold food too; that was unusual. There are many restaurants interspersed between shops. Better things to do in Galveston.

Parking on the Strand is a little inconvenient. We have a parking permit for the seawall but it doesn't count for The Strand parking. The shops are fun to go in and the variety of products are interesting.

I enjoyed strolling along the strand with a nice cold adult beverage and taking in the old architecture. The shops are okay, but ordinary tourist traps.
