Galveston, Galveston Island

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.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Thu): take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, take in the exciting artwork at MiArt Gallery, then contemplate the long history of 1892 Bishop's Palace, and finally get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Galveston day trip planning app.

Houston to Galveston is an approximately 1-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. In November, daytime highs in Galveston are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) early enough to drive to Houston.

Houston

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Explore Houston's surroundings by going to Helen's Garden (in League City) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, identify plant and animal life at Cockrell Butterfly Center, take in the dramatic scenery at Water Wall, and see the interesting displays at Space Center Houston.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Houston travel planner.

Drive from Galveston to Houston in an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In November, plan for daily highs up to 73°F, and evening lows to 56°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
