Galveston Island Tweets!

Galveston.com made its debut in the fall of 1994. It was the early days of the internet, and the site was simple, very small, and graphically cryptic. But it was the dawn of a new era regarding Galveston Island tourism.

We understood that harnessing the web's power for destination promotion - Galveston in particular - could not only introduce the Island to an entirely new audience, but also could deliver information in a way that simply wasn't possible via a standard color brochure.

That was 1994. Since then, Galveston.com & Company, Inc. has evolved into an multi-faceted corporation, offering website visitors and local businesses an impressive list of innovations that are quite unique in the industry, and were a mere dream way back then.

Galveston.com is now home to literally thousands of pages of Island information, and features a tantalizing array of features including online reservations, user reviews, itinerary builders, searchable real estate & vacation rental listings, ticketing, our own 24-hour in-room television channel, and much more.

The power behind Galveston.com is the state-the-art DestinationNext™ tourism portal module, also a product of the programming team at Galveston.com & Company. Vast in its abilities and second-to-none in its scope, DestinationNext™ is a multi-tiered software bundle that encompasses tourism portal implementation and management, website advertising and traffic monitoring, online cruise reservations, online lodging and parking reservations, and online ticketing - all in one easy-to-administer, easy-to-incorporate tourism solution.

Galveston.com & Company promotes literally hundreds of local and area businesses via website design and online advertising services; and supports a host of Galveston's most revered events and organizations, including Dickens on the Strand, Mardi Gras! Galveston, Galveston Restaurant Week, ARToberFEST, and The Grand 1894 Opera House, just to name a few.

If you'd like to discuss DestinationNext™ as a solution for your location; a web design project; Galveston.com advertising opportunities; or any other request, comment, or suggestion, please call our office at (409)763-8676, or email websites@galveston.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
