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.
Galveston is known for historic sites, parks, museums, wildlife, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, don't miss a visit to Tree Sculptures, take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, and take an in-depth tour of Moody Mansion.
