Seawall, Galveston: 7 reviews and 12 photos
The seawall was built in 1902 after the most devastating natural distaster (hurricane) in 1900. It runs for 10 miles and is across from various shops and restaurants.
While walking, running, biking, etc. down the seawall make sure to check out the history behind Galveston and the tragic hurricane. There are many statues and national landmark signs to read while learning about the importance of this Galveston saint watching over the island.
The most interesting? There was an orphan asylum that was destroyed along with 10 nuns and 90 children. Three boys were the only survivors found at sea. Right there on the sea wall....
Address: Texas F. M. 3005
Directions: Turn right off of Broadway. Beginning of 10 mile stretch
