The Strand, Galveston

3.9
Take a stroll through The Strand district, home to a number of historical buildings, restaurants, antique shops, art galleries, and souvenir stores. Many of these late-18th-century constructions survived the 1900 storm, the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history. You can learn more about the natural disaster at Pier 21, which has daily showings of "The Great Storm of 1900." Horse-and-carriage rides or an old-fashioned trolley are novel ways to explore the neighborhood. Make The Strand a part of your Galveston vacation plans using our Galveston trip itinerary planner.
