The Strand

Once known as the “Wall Street of the South,” the Strand is the main shopping street in the historic downtown area. Shopping here is a treat. Instead of packed malls and stuffy high-end stores, you will find quaint gift shops, art galleries, and cafes to rest your feet when you need a little break. As you pop in and out of the varied shops, admire the 19th-century architecture lining the district, recognized as a National Historic Landmark.
