The bustling cruise ship terminal is located on the harbor side of downtown.

Galveston has an impressive fourth of July celebration (fireworks display are set off at 37th Street jetty right down the street). Thanksgiving and Christmas are another ideal time to be on the island. The summer crowds have thinned out, the weather is mild (bordering on awesome), and the atmosphere is laid back.
If it is raucous fun and excitement you're looking for, then come down for Mardi Gras (several Mardi Gras parades march down this section of Seawall Blvd.
Spring break/ Memorial Day, or The Lone Star Bike Rally (usually the first week of November).
