Find the Turtles About Town, a public art project about the Turtle Island conservation efforts. Explore Galveston’s rich African-American heritage, with its 14 historically African-American churches that were organized more than 100 years ago and still serve the community today.
Many unique experiences crisscross the island and are ready for your discovery. Take your time, bring a book and stop for something to eat at one of our wonderful cafes and restaurants. After lunch, head out on another self-guided tour. Walk the Seawall Interpretive Trail, with plenty of artist-designed benches to sit. Park your car and board the free ferry to Bolivar Peninsula and back. And polish off the day by watching the sunset on a cruise or sitting on the sand at Pirates Beach in Galveston Island State Park.
