The siren song of breaking waves draws visitors to Galveston’s beaches generation after generation. Warm breezes and year-round temperate seas complement the city’s rich historic districts, award winning restaurants, unique attractions, and bustling shops. And though Galveston’s relaxed island atmosphere is only 50 minutes from Houston, it is a world away in spirit. At 32 miles long and two and a half miles wide, many residents can’t remember the last time they visited the mainland, and if circumstances permitted, most would never leave.
The Island has seen its share of Mother Nature’s wrath, yet the worst natural disaster in U.S.
history could not erase the tranquility of a Galveston sunset. From soft sandy beaches to famous 19th century architecture, the Island is surrounded with incredible history and unique beauty.
