Galveston

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: Kemah (Kemah Boardwalk & Boardwalk Beast), Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena) and Railean Rum Distillery (in San Leon). There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Moody Gardens, examine the collection at Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, contemplate the long history of Bishop's Palace, and make a trip to Tree Sculptures.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Galveston itinerary planning app .

In August in Galveston, expect temperatures between 90°F during the day and 80°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
