Galveston’s Midtown is primarily a residential area with unique corner stores and restaurants. While some locals may argue with these borders, the area includes everything west of 28th Street protected by the Seawall. Family adventure attractions Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark are popular among visitors. The area also includes the 1880 Garten Verein, 1838 Michel B. Menard House, Galveston Community College, Lasker Park Community Pool and several historic cemeteries.
