It's Island Time

While the 32-miles of beaches are not to be missed, Galveston offers so much more beyond the beach!

Galveston, Texas is a charming Southern retreat just 50 miles from Houston. It's a destination full of art, historic architecture, chic boutiques, ghost legends and more - all tucked within a quaint Gulf Coast barrier island. Come experience the charm of Galveston Island. #LoveGalveston
