A Weekend in Galveston


Are you looking for a short weekend away? Take the time to consider one of Texas’ most famous vacation sites, Galveston, for a perfect combination of beach life, history and dining. Follow this guide as you plan your getaway under the sun. 

Embrace the Sun
Once you have booked your Bush Airport transportation, find your way to the sea. Whether your hotel has a beachfront view or your looking for some activities by the water, Galveston offers plenty to fill your weekend with fun in the sun. Start with Public Access Beach 1A for the photo perfect white sand beach. Or you can head to Seawolf Park to see ruins of WWII ships and submarines. If you’re willing to go a little further, make your way to Crystal Beach, you may even see dolphins on the way. No seaside trip would be complete without taking a ride on the historical Colonel Paddlewheel boat along the coastline.
Soak up History
Galveston was founded over two hundred years ago by European settlers. This influence can be felt in the architecture, restaurants and other historical sites that cover this beautiful island city. To get yourself started, go to Pleasure Pier for some fun and games on this historical landmark. After, catch an opera at the Grand Historical 1894 Opera House. Don’t forget to take the time to explore some of the local mansions to get a taste of what early life in Galveston was like. No tour would be complete without shopping at the Murdochs, a famous shopping district built on the seawall.


Eat Delicious Seafood
No trip to Galveston would be complete without enjoying some of the amazing dining options that fill this city. Texas is famous for its steakhouses. In Galveston, these come stocked with raw bars allowing you to enjoy fresh oysters with a Texas steak while overlooking the sea. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, whether it’s shrimp or barbecue, this city offers something for everyone no matter the time of day. Finish off your eating tour by stopping at La King’s Confectionery for some malt shakes or saltwater taffy in this hundred-year-old establishment.

Whatever you are looking for in a weekend away, this island city offers a perfect break from the world. Whether you are taking in some of the historical sites, relaxing by the sea or enjoying some delicious seafood, Galveston has it all. Have a wonderful vacation!
