Welcome to Galveston

Galveston is a resort city on a long barrier island connected by bridge to the Southeast Texas coastline. Only 50 miles from Houston, Galveston has long been an important Texas port city and recreation destination. Now visitors find beautiful beaches and seaside fun along with the historic Strand District and Galveston Seaport. There is plenty to do – cruise along the seawall, go fishing, view the Bryan Museum’s huge collection of Texas artifacts, documents, and artwork, tour the historic Red Light district, or explore haunted Galveston. It’s easy to see the city sights by e-bike or Segway, while dolphin watching tours, jet boat rides, and peaceful sunset cruises open up views from offshore.
