From the blog: Explore Seawolf Park in Galveston, Texas

Located on Galveston's Pelican Island, Seawolf Park boasts one of the island's most popular fishing piers and picnic sites. The park also features a playground for the kids and plenty of tourist attractions, including the WWII submarine, the USS Cavalla, and one of only three destroyer escorts, the USS Stewart. The remains of the WWI tanker S.S. Selma, the largest concrete ship constructed, can be seen northwest of Seawolf Park's fishing pier.Parking (One Time Entry Per Vehicle with Paid Entry):
