  • Spring Break

    "We had a great time! Loved the condo. We vacationed with our 9 month old son and daughter and her fiancé. The kitchen had everything that you needed. Owners are very kind. And, even though it was too cool to swim, we still enjoyed the beach with the chairs and toys that were already at the condo! The beds! Oh, I wish I could bring them home! Beds are always a deal breaker with me. I didn't once wake up with a back ache! I would recommend this condo to anyone. Walmart is less than a block away. Too many great things to list!"

  • Great condo for a multi-family vacation!

    "We chose this condo for our summertime family vacation this weekend. It was a wonderful experience! A total of 3 families comfortably fit in the space (4 children under the age of 5 and an 8 month old) plus 7 adults.) Each family had their own spacious room with connecting full bathroom. My mother in law slept on a twin mattress and box spring in the living room with sheets and a comforter that were already in the condo. There is no need to bring a blow up mattress. All of the kids slept in the "kids room" with the bunk beds that they were SO excited about sleeping in. My 2 year old son slept on a twin mattress on the floor of the kids room (also already in the condo). This condo overlooks the ocean and the strand and has a beautiful view. The balcony (also equipped with a hot tub) wraps around the entire condo we loved watching the ocean/waves and the people passing by on their bikes, etc. We visited Pleasure pier which was only a 2 minute drive away. We could've walked but we had small kids so we wanted to get closer. We also went to Moody Gardens which only took us about 15 minutes to get to. The condo had plenty of dishes and cookware, and all of the amenities your home kitchen has. We were able to wash clothes and towels in the washer/dryer combo which was also very nice. During our stay we discovered that the DVD player was broken and after calling the owners, they promptly addressed the issue by getting us an HDMI cable to connect to our computer and the next day they brought us a fully functioning DVD player an our kids were able to watch LEGO movie. The large dining area table was great to eat and play games on. We would definitely rent this condo again in the future."

Galveston Travel Tips

Galveston, a Texas coastal city on an island just southeast of Houston, is an excellent vacation spot for families, history lovers and those looking for a little rest and relaxation on the beach.

Family Fun

Moody Gardens

This stronghold of education and family fun is a mainstay on any trip to Galveston. Its main attractions are three giant glass pyramids. A towering Aquarium Pyramid with exhibits related to geographic areas like the South Atlantic, which hosts a penguin encounter, and the Caribbean - home to thousands of vibrant tropical fish. Head to the Rainforest Pyramid to see funky-looking free-to-roam saki monkeys and macaws, or see special science exhibits at the Discovery Pyramid.

After you’ve soaked up plenty of knowledge, see a 4-D film at the Special FX Theater, immerse yourself in an interactive film at the Ridefilm Theater, or head outdoors to bask in the sun on the Palm Beach lazy river and water rides.

Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier

The perfectly named Pleasure Pier is Galveston’s boardwalk, complete with rides, games and excellent dining options. Fearless big kids will love the Iron Shark roller coaster and Pirate’s Plunge, tiny tots will love the carousel and everyone can take part in old-fashioned carnival games. Head to Fish Tales or Bubba Gump’s for family-friendly dining.

Galveston Island State Park

This excellent 2000-acre state park is about a 25-minute drive from the city of Galveston. Come here to enjoy the quiet, sandy white beaches. Rare birds are frequent visitors here, because the Galveston Island is a unique, undeveloped barrier island habitat, so keep your eyes peeled for interesting species as you take a walk through on the salt marsh and prairie trails in the northern part of the park.

For the History Buff

Galveston is home to many excellent historical sites, several of which are located in the famous Strand Historic District, which encompasses the area between 20th and 25th streets near the harbor.

Historic Homes

Though the inside isn’t open to the public, if you’re an architecture buff, visit the brick mansion, Ashton Villa, located at the corner of 23rd and May Streets in the historic district and built in 1859. Take a tour of the lavish, castle-like Victorian mansion, Bishop’s Palace, built of stone and steel in 1892 and located on Broadway Street. You’ll also want to consider seeing the Samuel May Williams historic house, which was built in 1839 for its namesake and is the second-oldest home in Galveston

Ships, Trains and Planes

Galveston is also abundant in military and transportation history. Visit Sea Wolf Park at the very tip of Pelican Island to see two ships with military history: the Cavalla and USS Stewart. The Cavalla is a decorated WWII submarine that serves as memorial to the USS Seawolf, which sunk during WWII. The USS Stewart also served during WWII and is one of only three destroyer escorts in the world.

For an amazing experience, visit Pier 21 to take a ride on the fully-functioning tall ship Elissa, built in 1877.

You can also visit the Galveston Railroad Museum, located in the historic district at 25th and Strand streets. Kids are bound to love this excellent museum as well. Aside from some pretty cool locomotives, it features some fun statues sitting on old train station benches for a perfect photo opportunity. The Lone Star Flight Museum, adjacent to Galveston’s Scholes International Airport, is another great option with several impressive old planes both indoors and out.
