This really a nice set-up for visiting the beach, enjoying the water, or just doing an observation outing. The whole idea of how they built the Seawall is fascinating and then to experience the beauty of the beach because of it is really great!
Went to Galveston and surrounding area in February and unfortunately it rained everyday and the sun barely shined all week. The Seawall are downtown confused me as there are miles of parking along the wall but they charge for parking with an unusual practice of...More
Glad I wasn't there in the summer. Lots of Pelicans and good to walk along. I would definately stay there again. The road a d wall did not impede a great view of the beach. Love seeing all the ships and other stuff out there...More
Although tourist attractions abound, we loved just walking the beach on a balmy, sunny Jan. afternoon. Pelicans dove , seabirds tiptoed and dipped, and we strode down the beach for miles. Stayed until sunset watching surfers play in the waves.
The Seawall was primary built for defending purposes of raging winds and waves of the Mexican Gulf, but in times it also became a tourist attraction.
The seawall is very long, and along it there're fishing piers, amusement piers, top hotels, restaurants and a very...More
I drove this 10 miles of seawall and was amazed at this man made feat. It is truly an incredible project. There are shops and restaurants that you can visit along the boulevard. Parking is all parallel along the seawall and you pay with your...More
The history of Galveston includes the many hurricanes that have shaped this area. The sea wall is part of that history and has certainly become a part of the history. Necessary for storm surge protection. The highway running along it gets you around easily with...More

Change at gas stations while we fill up gas...just make sure the gas station has restroom access before you pay for gas. Sometimes they are outta order until you say you aren't paying for gas if they don't have a restroom...

The Seawall is eleven miles long and has metered parking all along. If you just want a walk on the beach you can park pretty much anywhere (hot tip: there are steps at intervals. Park near the steps if you’re going to the beach.) If you want to go to the restaurants you’ll have to cross a wide and busy road, so look for parking near an intersection with a traffic light. Your parents should be fine if it’s not too busy, like a holiday weekend. Otherwise it could be a hike.
