Singer Glen Campbell sums it up, “Galveston, Oh Galveston, I can see your sea waves crashing”.
Galveston Island is a historic beach town on the Gulf of Mexico, located 50 miles south of Houston, TX. It’s a barrier island between Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
The island’s laid back, welcoming atmosphere makes it the perfect vacation destination and has been recently named one of Trip Advisor’s “Top 10 Destinations on the Rise in the U.S.”
With 32 miles of beautiful Gulf beaches and calm, warm waters, Galveston’s mild weather generally allows visitors to enjoy the beautiful outdoors year-round.
Whether you want to swim, picnic, sunbathe, paddle board or wander and collect shells, the island’s plentiful beaches make for a tranquil experience.
Stand-up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is one of the hottest sports in the country. With zero experience required, anyone can get out in the ocean and give it a try.
