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 Railean Rum Distillery (in San Leon), La Porte (Battleship Texas State Historic Site & San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site) and Kemah (Stingray Reef 215 Kipp Ave & Kemah Boardwalk). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of The Seawall, engage your brain at Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Moody Gardens, and take an in-depth tour of Moody Mansion.
