Galveston’s 70-block historic downtown is a veritable treasure chest of culture, from the 19th-century architecture that made The Strand a National Historic Landmark to its museums, galleries and theaters.
A few blocks away? Postoffice Street near The Grand 1894 Opera House is Galveston’s newest shopping destination. Its beautiful Victorian buildings are filled with a colorful mix of boutiques, art galleries and restaurants.
On the district’s eastern edge, Modern Vintage (2005 Postoffice St., 409-762-0202) is full of vintage charm, offering one-of-a-kind home decor, colorful accessories, stylish fashions and chic apothecary goods.
