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.
Get in touch with nature at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Stewart Beach. Get some historical perspective at The Strand and Old City Cemetery. Change things up with these side-trips from Galveston: Armand Bayou Nature Center (in Pasadena), Sylvan Beach Park (in La Porte) and Crystal Beach (in Port Bolivar). The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Moody Gardens, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Seawall, enjoy the sand and surf at Galveston Pocket Park 2, and tour the pleasant surroundings at El Jardin Del Mar.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Galveston trip website .

In August, daily temperatures in Galveston can reach 90°F, while at night they dip to 80°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
