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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Moody Gardens and Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier. Get out of town with these interesting Galveston side-trips: Bayou Wildlife Zoo (in Alvin) and Kemah (Kemah Boardwalk, Boardwalk Beast, & more). Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, cool off at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark, and wander the streets of The Strand.
