miles long and two-and-a-half miles wide, the Island is
surrounded with incredible history and unique beauty.
Known as the Playground of the South, we hope you will
enjoy all Galveston has to offer - from beaches, to family
attractions, to historic architecture, outdoor adventure,
shopping, dining and cruising.
Galveston has the amenities of a larger city, but with tight-knit small town friendliness. Its ethnically diverse citizens have worked together to make their city better since the early days of its founding in 1836. When faced with adversity, Galvestonians unite to solve whatever obstacles may arise.
Non-profit organizations and community groups offer a variety of volunteer opportunities regardless of your interests or desired area of service. Additionally, more than 50 churches and two synagogues representing every major religious denomination are available in Galveston.
Historic Homes Tour Brings History to Life For the past 40 years, the Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) has been providing tours of some of Galveston’s most elaborate, ornate and famous—and infamous—residences during the Historic Homes Tour.
Celebrate History in Galveston This May Visitors to Galveston will be able to celebrate history this May with the return of two major special events: the 40th annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour and the Galveston Island Beach Revue.
