Welcome Winter Texans! Now that you've escaped the cold winter by heading south, it's island time! Galveston Island's tropical climate and breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico provide the relaxing escape you've been longing for. Yet, you'll feel right at home with the small town culture and southern hospitality found on this historic island.
Exploring in Galveston is easy to do as the island offers 32 miles of beaches, world-class attractions and adventure opportunities, one of the largest collections of Victorian architecture in the country, a charming historic downtown and plenty of award-winning restaurants.
For a formal introduction to the island, feel free to attend a "Winter Texan Welcome Reception" from 1:30-2:30 p.m. January 8 or February 10 at the visitor center.
Historic Churches Abound on Galveston Island While cruising aimlessly around the island from time to time as I am wont to do, I’m frequently awestruck by the sheer number of stately, generations-old churches that populate Galveston.
Being a Winter Texan has its benefits! Stop by the Galveston Island Visitor Information Center to pick up your Island Savings pass for exclusive offers and special discounts for Winter Texans. The visitor information center is located inside Ashton Villa at 2328 Broadway Ave.
