So many stores and everyone is different. A great place to take a stroll and do some shopping. Hazy days was my favorite hehe.

We had about 1 hour to kill while waiting for a shuttle we decided to take a walk around the strand. It is definitely a street with lots to see with shops places to eat and enjoy some of the building architecture. They have signs that talk of the buildings and history which adds to the fun. Definitely a place to go visit and I would like to go back to spend more time in the area. Fun Street.

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.

The Strand is an assortment of shops and eateries. You can find places to have a drink, great food, antiques, a huge candy factory, ice cream, great architecture, art galleries, souvenir shops, upscale clothing, well, just about everything. It is fun for the kids and adults alike and easy walking. If you prefer you can travel up and down on the trolley. Really fun.

I have been to beaches all around the world and Galveston has been the most disappointing. The shops and restaurants are not great. There is no white sand and normally you will find lots of seaweed in the water and on the beach.
