Galveston Lodging: A Launchpad for Exploring the Historic Island

On your next pleasure trip to Galveston, check out Galveston vacation homes, which situate you ideally to take advantage of the sights and sounds of the island. If you're a newcomer to this part of the country, you might need a bit of an introduction to the area. There are six historic districts, each with its own distinctive charm and character. Galveston vacation rentals access over 60 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so if you're a history buff, this corner of the world will keep you smiling.

The More Modern Side

For those who enjoy commerce-related items, Galveston lodging can have you situated near the Strand, once the area's foremost business center, which has since morphed into a thriving shopping and entertainment center. To contrast with the mostly Victorian buildings in the area, the experience need not be entirely modern. Take a horse and carriage ride, or even the old fashioned trolley, to drink in the sights. Then leave the past behind and make your way over to the Saengerfest Park, where the huge chess set will make you think Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland has been here before you. The Galveston County Museum will place you further into the mood of the area, and soon after leaving Galveston vacation homes for the day, you will be strolling along Avenue B, humming songs that were sung before the civil war era.

Views of Every Sort

Whether your interests take you far back into history or merely to the ocean, Galveston offers the full range of views. Use Galveston lodging as your operating base as you absorb a culture far removed from that of the mainland. From windswept beaches with their sometimes rocky shores and expansive ocean vistas, to architectural designs reminiscent of a quaint European villa, visiting Galveston is a visual feast.
