Something for Everyone

Whether you are a long-time bicyclist or someone who just wants to enjoy the scenery, you’ll find all sorts of great places to explore. There are wonderful sights along the Historic Galveston Island Pleasure Pier. Ride for a bit and then take a break at any one of the many restaurants and watering holes. There are also great vendors along the way, and beachfront shops where you can do a little shopping.

If you love architecture, take a ride through Galveston’s historic district. Also, don’t miss the East End or Silk Stocking Historical Districts, where you can find architecture going back to pre-1900 storm.

Throughout the area, you can find some wonderful remnants of Hurricane Ike. While this storm destroyed many of the beloved oak trees in the historical areas, you’ll find that the homeowners took something bad and turned it into some good! Some of the remaining tree trunks were turned into works of art depicting pets, storybook characters, nature, and other carved whimsy. There’s even an available tree sculpture map available at visitor centers and area brochure racks.

The famous Seawall Boulevard stretches for more than 10 miles, where you can ride on paved sidewalks to enjoy the sun and the views. And of course, you can just enjoy the ocean breezes from the Gulf of Mexico. Wherever you choose to go, biking in Galveston is sure to deliver a great experience!
