Kenny Chesney said it best when he sang “the sun and the sand and a drink in my hand, with no bottom. No shoes, no shirt, no problem!” If you’re looking to stick your own toes in the sand, look no further than Galveston, on the Texas Gulf Coast with gorgeous sandy shores about an hour outside of Houston. The average temperature in Galveston rarely gets above 93 degrees in the summer, meaning you can enjoy the sunshine and the breeze off the water with your toes in the sand without the extreme heat other parts of Texas are famous for.
Galveston is a wonderful vacation spot for families and friends from Texas and beyond. Once dubbed “The Wall Street of the South,” Galveston was the second richest per capita in the United States before the devastating storm that struck the town in 1900. Galveston, now a town of about 50,000 residents, has rich a history and a lot of fun to offers travelers. Whether you want to kick back on the beach or experience the nostalgic fun on the Galveston Island Pleasure Pier, there are plenty of reasons to make plans for a Galveston Getaway as soon as possible!
