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.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Fri): take a stroll through East End Historic District, then wander the streets of The Strand, and then enjoy breathtaking views from Galveston's 61st Street Fishing Pier. Keep things going the next day: stop by Murdochs, then take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, and then stroll through El Jardin Del Mar.

If you are flying in from Guatemala, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In April in Galveston, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 21°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
