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.
