In downtown Galveston, also known as The Strand a trolley is available for $1.50. It circles around the historic Victorian homes. It's a great way to see the old city, as well as a chance to rest your feet from all the shopping at The Strand!
Beware, during the summer it may be hot!
From their website:
"With board fixed rail trolley cars built in a turn of the century style similar to those used in Galveston from the late 1800s to 1938, the trolley provides a unique mode of transportation from Galveston's Seawall to the Strand Landmark Historic District, Pier 21, and to The University of Texas Medical Branch. The ride offers beautiful historic homes and other points of interest along the route.
Passengers can catch the trolley every 20 minutes at any given stop. The trolleys run approximately every 40 minutes.
In 1988, the City revived the fixed rail Trolley, serving Seawall Boulevard, 25th Street, downtown and the historic Strand District. The trolley system was expanded in 1995 to include areas of the Galveston Wharf, and expanded again in 2004 to include service to UTMB.
Galveston Island Trolley service area covers over 8 miles.
