The expansive, glistening sandy beaches of Galveston Island are definitely a fun way to pass the day in our fantastic beach town, but there can be more to vacation than lounging! For hustle, bustle, leisure, learning, and more, you simply must visit historic downtown Galveston!
Sights and Smells
It can hardly be called “downtown” without two important things—rich history and delightful cuisine! Galveston really embraces its heritage, with plenty of museums that reach back and cherish different eras of our country. Marvel at the Tall Ship Elissa—a floating museum you can walk aboard—that dates back to 1877. Or, if you prefer contemporary history, check out the Ocean Star Offshore Rig and learn about the ways that new drilling techniques continue to change the shape of America’s energy policy. Head southwest and tour the Moody Mansion—a restored 1895 estate of one of Texas’s tycoons.
Might we recommend a bite to eat? Some restaurants here are themselves pieces of history, with the Star Drug Store having morphed into a café since its inception over 80 years ago, while Maceo Bakery, too, boasts a history of over half a century. Additionally, we offer great local fare, such as Katie’s Seafood Market. And while Galveston is a great spot for seafood, downtown offers pretty much everything for your cravings, from coffee shops to Mexican, Italian, and Greek!
Play the Tourist, Play the Local
If you’re lucky enough to be in town for a festival such as movie nights or parades, downtown is the place to be. Or if you just want to look around, check out the tour companies who make downtown their HQ. Whether you prefer to approach a city from a tourist’s perspective or a local’s, you’ll find your way to downtown!
