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 Galveston's surroundings by going to Kemah Boardwalk (in Kemah), Big Thicket National Preserve (in Kountze) and Railean Rum Distillery (in San Leon). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, examine the collection at Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, make a trip to Tree Sculptures, and browse the exhibits of Moody Mansion.

For maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Galveston travel itinerary planner.

In October in Galveston, expect temperatures between 82°F during the day and 71°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
