Stay at Home Order Issued For Galveston

City officials are currently not encouraging visitation to the island and have ordered all short-term guests to leave hotels, vacation rentals, and RV parks, except those here for essential business purposes. The island is committed to welcoming back visitors this summer.

While many of us have been out and about on Galveston island, we’ve noticed that there are a lot of folks enjoying outside spaces during this time of uncertainty. While we hope that you enjoy your time on the Island, please make sure you adhere to public health mandates. Most importantly, stay home if you think you might be sick and be sure to practice social distancing.

Galveston’s resilient spirit is on full display, as some of the Island’s best eateries continue to share their legendary recipes with us – just in a different, less-familiar way.  Many restaurants have started offering takeout, curbside pickup, delivery, and other special offers. Our shop owners are adapting with online sales and other strategies.

To help out, our partners at the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau are keeping these lists updated:

Please note: The following businesses are “open” in some way – maybe fully open, maybe only by appointment, maybe with limited hours. Please call ahead, as hours are constantly changing.

Tips to Enjoying the Island ‘at a Safe Distance’

Downtown Boutique, Galveston, TX

Shopping on the Island

Experience Island shopping from the comfort of your home. Online shopping has never been more personal, convenient or more fun. Locally owned shops can help you with call-in and online orders, some are even offering delivery. Now’s the time to find that one-of-a-kind Easter, Mother’s Day, birthday or gifts for any occasion. Support Galveston businesses by stocking up on gift-cards from your favorites spots on the Island!

Turtles About Town

Walking the Island

For residents, there are lots of opportunities to explore the island on foot. Take a tour of the Turtles About Town or a Tree Sculpture Tour. Many historic neighborhoods feature grand homes and mansions, ripe for Insta. Or, take advantage of nature-based activities like birding and fishing.

Bottom line: Educate yourself on the current state of COVID-19 and make the travel decision that is best for you and your family. Understanding the level of risk found in your travel destination of choice is a very important step. Continue to visit Galveston.com as we will monitor the situation and share information. We look forward to welcoming you back this summer.
Looking Eastward at Galveston Beach

Beaches

Though beaches are still accessible, all beach park public service amenities are now closed, including amenities at East Beach, Stewart Beach, Seawall Urban Park, Dellanera RV Park, and Seawolf Park. Visitation is not encouraged at this time.

San Luis Hotel

Plan a Future Stay

City officials have ordered all short-term guests to leave hotels, vacation rentals, and RV parks. If you are optimistic like most of us on the island, you can still plan your summer vacation.

Outside Dining, Galveston, TX

Dining

Despite the abundance of caution everyone is taking right now, we think the abundance of fabulous Galveston cuisine shouldn’t be overlooked. So, even though restaurants are currently limited to take-out, delivery, and drive-thru (hotel restaurants are still allowed to serve their guests), you don’t have to miss out on all your favorites. And don’t forget – restaurant gift cards make perfect gifts!

Coronavirus Updates

Here on Galveston Island, our top priority is the safety, health, and wellbeing of our community, its residents, and visitors. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding COVID-19 and are committed to being responsive to your needs and those of all our guests as the situation evolves.
