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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Stewart Beach and Fishing Charters & Tours. Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Galveston Island State Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Galveston: Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah) and Crystal Beach (in Port Bolivar). And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with The Strand, contemplate the long history of Bishop's Palace, enjoy the sand and surf at Galveston Pocket Park 2, and tour the pleasant surroundings at El Jardin Del Mar.

For photos, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Galveston tour itinerary app .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 90°F, and evening lows to 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
