Galveston Island (Hotel Prices & Photos)

A perfect weekend getaway for the entire family, Galveston Island is located on a barrier island on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Only 50 miles south of Houston, it’s great for a weekend of embracing the laid-back beach atmosphere, spotting dolphins in the water and enjoying the sunshine.

If you can peel yourself away from the 32 miles of pristine coastline, head to Moody Gardens aquarium and the Schlitterbahn Waterpark for a day of adventure. Browse the area’s 19th-century historic district to find an array of museums, galleries and theaters, or visit The Strand, an area known for its abundance of impressive waterfront restaurants.
