Victoriana isn't the only period you'll find in Galveston's historic "Strand" commerce district: the grand tradition of the American luncheonette drug store lives on at the Star Drugstore, "The Oldest Drugstore in Texas." The Star Drug Store feels more like a painting by Norman Rockwell come to life. Debuting in 1912, the Star has been lovingly restored, from its famous horseshoe shaped lunch counter to the iconic 50s-era "Drink Coke" sign out front. Luckily, you can still find a seat at the counter and order the famed Galvestonian Omelet with country potatoes and a side of sausage. Portions are Texas-sized, so order wisely—and don't forget to shop for tchotchkes at the collectible counter on the way out.
