Some of the Best Things to Do in Galveston Island

In 2004 our 10-year-old company took a look at Galveston Island and decided it really liked what it saw, enough to pull up stakes from Houston and plant them again in the sandy grounds of this beautiful Texas island. Many of our own vacations had been spent not far from where our office doors were located and we knew just what we were getting into. Galveston Island is a beautiful stretch of land on the Gulf of Mexico and even after being based here for over 12 years, we STILL find new and fun things to fill our days and evenings in paradise. Galveston has stolen our hearts and we have a feeling it will do the same for you!

Island Adventures

The really wonderful thing about island life is the sheer number of options you have for filling your days. You could spend years trying one new thing a day and STILL find new things to do in Galveston Island! Beach days can be spent on a blanket in the sand, soaking up the rays while reading your favorite book or frolicking in the waters enjoying all manner of water sports; surfing, swimming, sailing jet skiing, kayaking—the list of water activities is endless!

Explore the undersea life at our world famous Moody Gardens or fight the heat of long summer days by slipping and sliding in our hometown favorite, Schlitterbahn Waterpark. For over 10 years, this waterpark has been one of the most family-friendly things to do in Galveston Island. Visit our historic Pleasure Pier and experience life as it once was. Pleasure Pier originally opened in the 1940’s as an entertainment area for our military men and today, your Galveston vacation would not be complete without a visit to this historic boardwalk park that rivals Navy Pier in Chicago.

Don’t feel left out if arts and culture is what makes your heart beat a little faster; our museums and art galleries will keep you busy, entertained, and engaged as you enjoy your Galveston Island sojourn, especially when you enjoy an evening at our Grand Opera House. Elegance and history surround the structure whose humble beginnings began in 1894; just don’t let the relatively humble exterior fool you. Once inside, you will be awed and amazed at the grandeur of this genteel lady.

As if all this weren’t enough, some of the most fun things to do in Galveston Island are the frequent festivals and special events. Celebrate Mardi Gras, your love of motorcycles, or even take the time to view the wonders of our sandcastle competition. These festivals and events ensure your time in Galveston will be packed full of entertainment and excitement!
