"The Historic Strand District" Top 5 Page for this destination Galveston Favorite Tip by msbrandysue
Galveston General: 17 reviews and 34 photos
Favorite thing: The Galveston Strand is a very famous area. It has more restored Victorian houses than any other town in the United States. Many of the houses are available for tour throughout the year. They are even decorated nicely for Christmas.
While shopping in the Strand you will see many historical markers. Don't pass these up!
Also, you can take the Strand trolley around to view many of the more famous homes.
If you enjoy that kind of traveling I know you will love touring houses such as Bishop's Palace.
While you're in the area don't forget the fun shopping and sidewalk cafes. Or, try one of the other railroad or history museums.
