Galveston Travel Tips

Galveston is a unique island in the gulf coast of Texas where historic Victorian buildings meet the ocean, an idyllic combination for a beach vacation. The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, an old-fashioned boardwalk overlooking the gulf, is packed with family friendly games, rides, and refreshments. Relax on the shores of the gulf or ride water slides at Galveston Island Schlitterbahn water park to cool off. Our beach houses, condo rentals, and resorts are steps from the shore and downtown Galveston. Beautifully preserved Victorian mansions line the streets of the Strand and East End Historic Districts on the north end of the city. Across the island, Moody Gardens aquarium offers educational and interactive entertainment to excite visitors about wildlife conservation.

Step back in time and absorb the history and culture of the Texas gulf coast. A dream beach vacation is just an hour away from bustling Houston. Relax on the golden shores and enjoy the comforts of home in a resort, condo, or beach house rental in Galveston with Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels™!
