An old colonial city and a busy cruise ship port less than an hour's drive from Houston, Galveston sits on Galveston Island and serves as a popular vacation destination for both domestic and international travelers.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Galveston: La Porte (Battleship Texas State Historic Site & San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site), Kemah (Kemah Boardwalk & Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave) and Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall, admire the natural beauty at Moody Gardens, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and find something for the whole family at Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier.

To find more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Galveston itinerary planning app .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 82°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
