 In many ways, the downtown area, known as The Strand Historic District, is the heart and soul of Historic Galveston. In the mid-to-late Nineteen Century, this thriving business district generated the tremendous wealth that built this city. Here, Galveston's businessmen created one of the finest examples of commercial Victorian architecture anywhere in the country! Today, it has been transformed into the home of over 95 shops, nightclubs, bars, restaurants, pubs, antique stores, boutiques, coffee shops, souvenir stores and art galleries; as well as many offices, apartments and lofts. It is also the center of a rich and diverse live music and art scene.
