Galveston's Fourth of July Parade Promises to Dazzle
To say that Jay Carnes is a parade enthusiast is like saying it gets hot in Texas in the summer time.

Stay Safe While Having Fun at the Beach
There’s nothing like spending a warm, sunny day cooling off at the beach. But while this summer pastime is loads of fun, it can also be dangerous if the right precautions aren’t taken.

Bad Boy! BAD Boy!
Did you know that when you complete your cruise check-in, that information becomes part of the “passenger manifest” which the cruise lines share not only with U.S. Customs and Immigration, but with the Office of Homeland Security as well?

Sports & Outdoors RSS: Galveston.com News


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.
 

Exhibitions & Tours RSS: Exhibitions & Tours


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.
