Galveston may be best known for its sandy beaches, but there’s far more to do here than working on your suntan.
Experience the world’s fastest-growing sport, stand up paddle boarding and catch a few thrills at one of the island's attractions. Admire the beauty of the Texas Gulf Coast as you kayak through the marshes and bayous of Galveston Island State Park.
