****Much of Galveston was devastated by Hurricane Ike in September 08. Please check all places before visiting as some of them are still closed!!!
I come to Galveston for fun events that are hosted. Also, just to get away from the city of Houston. And then, there's also the wind and the sand and the water that just drowns out all the problems in the world!
The first weekend in December hosts Dickens on the Strand is a Christmas event where people dress up in old Victorian clothes and Galveston, Texas becomes old London, England! January and February hosts Mardi Gras Galveston where the streets become New Orleans with parades and beads galore. It's fun to see it all.....
If you are looking for fun day trips from Galveston you might try La Porte which includes the San Jacinto State Park or Texas City or maybe Kemah.
My favorite part would have to be the laid back, casual, fun, vacation atmoshere that emcompasses Galveston. I love the wind in my hair. I LOVE walking down the beach. Especially at night holding hands......
I have to say Galveston Outdoor Musicals are my definite surprise attraction. After a long day at the beach it's a nice evening to spend watching GREAT theatre outdoors while that favorite wind of mine is still blowing :)
