Galveston is one of the secrets of the American Gulf Coast. An island of Victorian homes and a playground for children of all ages, it survived one of our worst tragedies with the death of over 9,000 people caught in a hurricane and flooding in 1900.
Today, it's home to Moody Gardens, a beautifully created tropical rainforest, luxury hotels, an opera house and some of the most renowned restaurants in the Lone Star State.
Galveston remains an important port town with a 32-mile stretch of beaches, ranging from family-friendly and isolated to go have a party!
The fresh seafood is amazing and you can literally step on to one of the piers or charter boats to catch your meal. The nightlife is rocking! One visit will just not be enough!
