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.
Escape the urban bustle at Big Thicket National Preserve and Fishing Charters & Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Galveston side-trips: Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena) and Timber Creek Golf Club (in Friendswood). There's much more to do: take a stroll through The Strand, stroll the grounds of Old City Cemetery, take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, and admire the majestic nature at Galveston Island State Park.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Galveston trip planner .

October in Galveston sees daily highs of 82°F and lows of 71°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
