To some, Galveston will always be an island defined by its storied past, its 19th-century elegance, big-city ambitions, notorious seaport and even more notorious storms. But visitors to the island these days might be forgiven for thinking they’ve happened upon a new golden age, one even more glorious than the last.

From world-class museums to brand-spanking-new cruise ships, from the explosion in entertainment and dining options to the ever-growing number of places to stay, shop, and explore, this is not your grandfather’s Galveston - or your father’s, for that matter. Except that it is.

The atmosphere is still as warm and friendly as the breezes. The beaches - as beautiful and inviting as they’ve ever been- still go on forever. It’s Galveston as you always knew it, and always knew it could be.

Fortunately, the island offers a wide variety of accommodations, from swanky resorts and beach houses to budget-conscious lodging and cozy bed-and-breakfasts. Choosing the place that’s right for you may seem like an overwhelming task, but the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau is happy to help! Call their toll-free visitor line (888-GAL-ISLE) for suggestions.
