You Should Get On Island Time

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.
