With over 30 miles of beaches and the Pleasure Pier- one of the world's top-five seaside parks, Galveston is a bustling vacation destination island located just south of Houston in the Gulf of Mexico. Families can enjoy Moody Gardens, with its replica of the rainforest and 6 story IMAX-3D Theater. Galveston is also home to Texas’s premier water park, Schlitterbahn, with over 35 thrilling water adventures with something for all ages. The Historic Downtown Strand District is filled with shops, restaurants, galleries and museums and all just steps away from the Galveston Cruise Ship Terminals. Book a deep sea fishing excursion or, for the not so adventurous, you can stay on dry land and go crabbing along one Galveston’s many piers. With all the fun Galveston has to offer, don’t forget to spend some time just relaxing at the beach.
