Galveston


Description

Galveston city is located on a barrier island off the Gulf coast of Texas about 40 miles southeast from Houston. The city has a long a proud history - perhaps its most challenging time was the Great Storm of 1900 - after which the whole city was raised 15ft, and a great sea wall was built. Today, Galveston is a major city and can boast of original historical sights, boat tours of the bay, miles of beaches and more than a dozen museums.

There is lots to do for the visitor. Visit the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum to see at first-hand an offshore petroleum facility. Check out the three masted tall ship Elissa at the Texas seaport museum. Immerse yourself in history at the 1892 Bishop's Palace. Scare yourself silly at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Spend a day at Moody Gardens with its three easy-to-spot structures, the blue Aquarium pyramid, the glass Rainforest pyramid and the pink Discovery Pyramid. Or spend a day at friendly Stewart beach in front of the seawall.
