One of our favorite things to do when visiting a new place is to take a day and explore the stores, shops, and boutiques that are so different than those in our own hometowns. Even if we can find the same stuff at home, it just seems so much more exotic when purchased from a store we’ve never visited before. Galveston shops and stores are pretty special, however, and it’s real difficult to find establishments in other states that compare to what we have to offer right here in the sweet state of Texas. Believe us, shopping in Galveston will make your visit to the area that much more special—just see for yourself!
