    The prefect place to spend a day in Galveston. Lots of shots, restaurants and entertainment. Good for all ages. Parking isn't too difficult and there lots to do.

    Beautifully preserved and true to Galveston's earlier days. The architecture and sturdiness of the structures recalls craftsmanship that is now rarely found.

    Most places require purchases or have no public restrooms, all of the parking has to be paid for, great shopping and walking place though.
