The Strand, Galveston, Texas

The Strand in Galveston, Texas, can get to be a really exciting place. Especially around Mardi Gras and Christmas times, the Strand really livens up and provides a great place to walk. While Mardi Gras offers all of the sorts of entertainment you'd typically expect of such a celebration, Christmas has a special flavor in Galveston. Each year there is a "Dickens on the Strand" celebration, where costumes and entertainment bring out a Dickensian feel to the place.

Any time of year, though, the Strand makes an enjoyable place to walk. Lined with shops on either side of the road, music floating out from the many establishments set up for entertainment, it all creates and environment of relaxation and play. It's a great place for any visitor to Galveston to take a stroll and soak up the sites.
