What travelers to Galveston are saying

We had such a fun time in Galveston this trip (June 21-23). We ate at several great restaurants, the Olympia Grill, Nonno Tony's, Joe's Crab Shack (awesome raspberry tea), Sunflower Bakery, Miller's, La King's Confectionery. We had some yummy ice cream at King's, and got to see a demonstration of how they make taffy and even got a fresh, warm sample of their cinnamon taffy! We took an excursion boat out of the harbor by the Harbor House Hotel that was a sightseeing trip of the area with dolphin sightings included. The Suntime Watersports Jetboat ride was amazing and definitely should be on your to do list!! We also enjoyed driving down to the east end of the seawall and watching all the ships going back and forth to and from the Houston ship channel. And we loved going into Beachtown and walking down to the quiet part of the East Beach there that a lot of people don't know about. It is so clean and pretty and a great place to go to get away from the crowds, and free parking! And of course, walking all around the Strand area is always fun!

Galveston is just another town to me. I worked there for 10 years. It is a touristy type place if you like the beach. The Strand Area is worth the visit. My wife and I still make occasional trips there for a weekend getaway. There are a lot of attraction in and within an hours drive. When I worked there, I never went to any of the local attractions. Now that I no longer work there, my wife and gone back to see them all. I would definitely recommend a trip there from a weekend to a week.

Had not been there since before the hurricance. Enjoyey the dinning and entertainment options, but did not take it all in due to time restrictions. Only negative was the restrictive parking situation throughout the city, and having to pay by phone in lieu of onsite convenience.

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.
