WHY PEOPLE LOVE GALVESTON, TEXAS
Galveston is an island on the Texas Gulf Coast. It is located at the end of I-45 south, and in fact, the island is connected to Houston via I-45. Some areas of the island are only reached via ferry.
If you love the water, and/or want a vacation home that's a short drive from "home" (anything near Houston), then Galveston is a great choice. When looking for something to do, the options are endless, with bird watching, kayak launches, walking trails, multiple beaches, the pier and other attractions. Galveston is a great option for families, guy trips, girls trips, singles looking for a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors in - everyone could find a way to enjoy the island.
