Take a break this spring and experience life on island time. Galveston Island’s enchanting views of sparkling waters and sandy shores are a couple of reasons why time seems to stand still in this historic beach town. And while relaxing along 32 miles of coast is worth the trip alone, it’s just the beginning.

Home to a plethora of adventure attractions, from Moody Gardens to Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and the Pleasure Pier amusement park, Galveston offers plenty of thrills that make for an exciting vacation. And if you’d rather take a ride through history, there is plenty of that, too.
