Galveston Island Tweets!

You know, for us Islanders, living just a few miles south from the fourth largest city in America does have its privileges. There's convenient airport access. Cool sports teams like the Astros, Rockets, Texans, & Dynamo. And incredible world-class museums like The Menil Collection and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

But that road goes both ways - and Houstonians just can't get enough of our little Island paradise "just off Texas." And since we're conveniently located just 45 minutes away, right down Interstate 45? It couldn't possibly be any simpler to plan the perfect getaway right away!

Introducing #45toGalveston, a summer-long campaign chock full of helpful hints and fun itineraries, buckets full of exciting contests, and more! And while you're joining us in the fun? Share your vacation Instagrams with us with the hashtag #45 to Galveston!
