    Beautiful place, beautiful stuff, lots of good price points. Frozen drinks and beer, great veranda. But be warned, if you don't have your ID with a debit or credit purchase they will lecture you and possibly try to deny your purchase. I spoke with a mgr and was able to buy my items. Hassle tho

    It's a Galveston institution, friendly staff. The place consists of two buldings on pilings above the beach, connected by a large covered veranda with rocking chairs and viewing binoculars facing the water. In addition to the massive selection of souvenir shells, etc, you can get a COLD beer or strawberry daiquiri (margaritas, too!!) And take it the veranda to enjoy it's elevated view of the gulf. Bathrooms here are easily available and have always been clean, in my experience. Not the top of your list to do, but definitely a stop on the way to the top.

    Large variety of souvenirs related to Galveston. They have t-shirts, magnets, corals, shells, innovative photo frames, post cards etc. $5 limit for using cards and they will ask for ID to authorize card payments. Reasonable prices.

    Great selections of ever thing beach. Friendly staff, clean store over the beach. Chairs and tables on back porch overlook the beach, water and Pleasure Pier. Always a good breeze blowing. They also have soft drinks, beer and margaritas. Great place!

    This place has everything and anything you could want in a seaside souvenir shop by the water. Two flights of stairs on either side of the huge ramp offer tourists and natives alike their choice of entries into a wonderland guaranteed to snare the wandering tourist away from the beach for hours. Runs of fun for kids of all ages.

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
