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.
Take a break from Galveston with a short trip to Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah, about 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall, admire the natural beauty at Moody Gardens, take a stroll through The Strand, and look for gifts at Murdochs.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Galveston road trip planning app .

In August, daily temperatures in Galveston can reach 90°F, while at night they dip to 80°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
