Downtown Galveston is a unique experience that encompasses 70+ blocks of entertainment, dining, art and shopping in a historical ambiance that is unique in the United States.

In 1984, the Downtown Revitalization Coalition was founded to represent this area and today this original organization has evolved into the Historic Downtown Strand/Seaport Partnership, which represents this diversified area of businesses, building owners and residents.

From the famous Strand / Historic Historic District to the Arts and Entertainment District of Postoffice Street the Partnership has become the advocate of all Downtown Galveston.


The Partnership promotes, enhances and sustains the economic vitality, physical attractiveness and quality of life in historic Downtown Galveston.
