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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Galveston: Battleship Texas State Historic Site (in La Porte) and Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, get a taste of the local shopping with The Strand, contemplate the long history of Bishop's Palace, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

To find reviews, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Galveston tour builder website .

In September, daily temperatures in Galveston can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 78°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
