Take an "Island Time” Break This Summer
Take a break this summer and experience life on island time. Galveston Island’s enchanting views of sparkling waters and sandy shores are a couple of reasons why time seems to stand still in this historic beach town. And while relaxing along 32 miles of coast is worth the trip alone, it’s just the beginning.
Home to a plethora of adventure attractions, from the pyramids of Moody Gardens to Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and the Pleasure Pier amusement park, Galveston offers plenty of thrills that make for an exciting vacation. And if you’d rather take a ride through history, there is plenty of that, too.
Galveston was once known as the Wall Street of the South and served as the second busiest U.S. immigration station behind Ellis Island. You can learn about Galveston’s history at its many museums, such as the Texas Seaport Museum and 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA, Lone Star Flight Museum and Galveston Railroad Museum. The island is also home to one of the largest collections of well-preserved Victorian architecture in the country. Stunning examples like the1892 Bishop’s Palace and 1895 Moody Mansion are open for tours daily.
Seeing it all is easy with all-inclusive sightseeing tours. You can dolphin watch while exploring the island by sea on a Harbor Tour or explore even further on a Galveston Duck Tour, Cool Tour or on the Treasure Isle Tour Train. And don’t miss self-guided wandering through the island’s historic downtown district where shopping, dining and live entertainment will not disappoint!
Lodging in Galveston accommodates every budget and length of stay. Plan a week in one of the island’s charming beach houses and condos or take a quick escape in a hotel or a historic bed & breakfast.
