Galveston has something for everyone and Mermaid Cottage is minutes from it all: 3 Blocks to Beach and 6 Blocks to thrilling rides at the Pleasure Pier. 5 minute drive to the Historical Strand, Victorian buildings converted to stores, unique restaurants and museums. Fourteenth street has lots of wonderful restaurants including Mosquito Cafe. For history buffs, visit the 1892 Bishop's Palace, 1859 Ashton Villa, 1877 Tall sailing ship Elissa, Moody Mansion, and Pier 21 Theater to see how the 1900 Storm nearly destroyed Galveston.
