While there is a lot to do in Galveston, it's also a place where it feels comfortable to do little. At 10.4 miles long, the seawall lining the Gulf of Mexico is the world's longest continuous sidewalk and attracts walkers, joggers, bicyclists, surfers, sunbathers, skaters and sightseers year-round. It's a great place to exercise or just sit to watch a flock of brown pelicans skim across the waves at sunset.

Galveston Island is a beautiful, historic beach destination known for its great weather all year round. But, if you're not a sand-between-your-toes kind of traveler, don't worry. There are plenty of things to do in Galveston that don't include the beach, which is what makes our charming little island so diverse and special.
