What's the name of the white building in the very first picture of the Strand Galveston, TX? Thank you!
As previously mentioned, the old Santa Fe Railroad Station which houses a train museum is where the Strand dead ends at 25th St. and is a large white building.
Is there a local city bus that runs from downtown pad the Baymont hotel?
I believe there is a city bus but I'm not sure about routes or stops. Uber is an option if you don't have a vehicle and there are group bikes available for rent up and down the Strand !
Are the shops on The strand open on Sundays? If so, how late?
The weekends are the busiest, I'm almost certain their open late.
