We loved our stay warm friendly staff. The pool was very nice, and music playing was great! Very clean. We enjoyed their live band entertainment, awesome band! Also their restaurant was great. No need to go any place else. Loved it!

The island is your oyster in Galveston, Texas

The Texas coastline arcs around the Gulf of Mexico like a crescent moon, and Galveston Island shines as the star that marks its northern reach. This lovely, historic city welcomes vacationers and business travelers with every amenity and a gracious touch of hospitality. Are you in love with historic architecture? Lose your heart to the magnificent Bishop's Palace. Does science spark your imagination? Prepare for launch at Moody Gardens' Discovery Pyramid. Do you crave freshly cooked seafood? Catch your own off the jetties and picnic on the beach. From shopping adventures to grand Galveston hotels, the island is a place where relaxed family beaches coexist with corporate venues.

Things to see and do

The Pleasure Pier

Discover a world of boardwalk thrills on breathtaking rides that loop and sail over the blue waters of the Gulf. Relax with Midway Games like the dancing teacups and the carousel, enjoy delicious dining and pick up a few specialty souvenirs. The Pleasure Pier packs fun into any family outing.

Harbor tours

Adventures aboard the Seagull II start at the Texas Seaport Museum and depart for an afternoon cruise. Fair winds and gliding pelicans accompany this exceptional excursion into Galveston Bay. Be sure to salute the tall ship Elissa as you sail by.

Moody Gardens

Three stunning glass pyramids mark this magical spot, and each one encloses a special world. Explore the spheres of science, a tropical rainforest or the ocean's deepest secrets. Finish your trek with a refreshing splash at the Gardens' Palm Beach water park.

Special events

Mardi Gras

Why not revel in this lavish celebration with a sunset dance on the beach? Balcony parties, masked balls and more than two dozen parades rock the island from seashore to bayside. The locals love to party, and from bead throwing to glittering masks and costumes, you will soon find yourself swept away by this colorful event.

The Harvest Moon Regatta

Let your imagination sail to distant lands as you cheer on the elegant vessels in this annual October race. Give participants a roaring send-off amid a daylong celebration as Galveston's finest yachts conquer the Gulf and compete for sailing glory.

Dickens on the Strand

The first weekend of each December, historic properties along the Strand throw open their doors to this glorious celebration of all things Victorian. Don your finest period costume, join the festivities and immerse yourself in this most gracious period. Charles Dickens would certainly approve.

Where to stay

The Strand District

Architectural gems dating back to the 1830s line the streets of this historic five-block area within walking distance of the island's cruise ship terminal. Favorite Galveston hotels in this unique enclave include the bayside Harbor House and the venerable Tremont.

Seawall Boulevard

From luxury suites to economy motels, Seawall accommodations are priced for every budget. Spanning more than 10 miles, this scenic boulevard parallels the beach with walking access to surfside shopping, fresh seafood and easy pier fishing. Vibrant sunsets over the Gulf are included.

Moody Gardens Hotel Spa and Convention Center

Both families and business travelers appreciate the amenities offered at this remarkable location. The site's glass pyramids are part of an educational entertainment complex. The lush hotel grounds include conference facilities, high-tech meeting rooms and a gorgeous golf course.

Best time to visit

Have you ever dreamt about spending Christmas on an island? You don't have to splurge on an ocean cruise to enjoy 60-degree temperatures in the middle of December. Galveston's balmy climate is a year-round pleasure, and even the hottest summers enjoy Gulf breezes. Hurricane season runs from June through September, but it rarely slows down life in this little paradise.

Do you love the excitement of fellow vacationers enjoying endless sand and sunshine? Spring break brings out the party animal in young and old. If you prefer to have the beaches all to yourself, visit during the winter months, but expect a little extra company over Thanksgiving and Christmas.
