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.
Family-friendly places like Moody Gardens and Sea Center Texas will thrill your kids. Explore Galveston's surroundings by going to Kemah (Kemah Boardwalk & Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave). The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall, don't miss a visit to Tree Sculptures, contemplate the long history of Bishop's Palace, and learn about all things military at Galveston Naval Museum.

In December, daily temperatures in Galveston can reach 65°F, while at night they dip to 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
