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.
