Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu): steep yourself in history at Bishop's Palace, then explore the different monuments and memorials at Old City Cemetery, then take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, and finally brush up on your military savvy at Galveston Naval Museum.
