Love to listen to the ocean

Wide concrete walk allows for walking, running, biking, or, you can choose to walk along the sand. Plenty of pay for parking sites available

We had a great time enjoying the parades and meeting new people. We experienced the morning parade, sat on the beach during the afternoon, and enjoyed the evening parade!

Fortunately we made advanced reservations at galvez hotel and spa. View of gulf is beautiful and we can see the pleasure point (sounds a little deviant). Miller's can't be missed. Go see it!

We wanted to spend time on the beach, but because of all of the work being done, it was not open. The city is dredging sand from the gulf and putting on the beach to enlarge it.

Parking along... More

You may walk on the beach or on a concrete walk if you prefer not to walk in the sand. There are jetties you can walk out on to get a better feel of the water without getting into the water. It was too cold to enjoy the water so a walk on the sea wall was great. If you... More

We are at Seawall, Galveston, TX in January, 2017 for a cruise. Do not go to Galveston in the Winter time. The weathers are unpredictable, cold, misty and gloomy days. The cruise ship docking are very weather dependence.
