“It's not Florida but w/the right people it's FUN :)”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

The Seawall is a fun attraction and since IKE things are new and clean and well maintained for Texas Beach Front.

I had FUN laying out on the beach and renting the umbrella and beach chairs for my mom and I to take in the ocean and sun.

“Great job on cleaning up the island Galveston!”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

Galveston has done a great job cleaning up the seawall and beaches. The island is cleaner than I have ever seen it. I have been coming to Galveston for more than 25 years. I was supprised to see how great the entire island looks. My favorite trip to Galveston ever!

“Galveston is a nice mini vacation with a lot of history to discover! Relax and enjoy the sand and suN!”
Reviewed 30 April 2010

I love going to Galveston and riding down the seawall. I was really surprised, about a month ago, when the weather was just a little too cold to swim, the crowd was amazing, and I almost felt like I was on a tropical get-away, not just a commuter from houston. A lot of ppl down talk Galveston, the water may not be a pretty blue, but when the reflects off of it, it looks blue enough! There are beautiful sunsets, and a lot of history there! I think its a great place to take mini vacations and very family friendly! ; ) Can't wait to go this weekend and enjoy the sand, sun, beach, and fun!

“Don't walk - Drive!”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

We drove along the seawall - San Luis Pass Road - and really got a feel for the island. This is the main drag for the island, Broadway being the second biggest street, and it really helped us figure out what our eating choices were, great hotel ideas, and we also loved looking at the ocean. Walking might be nice in the early morning or late evening hours. You could also rent a bike or other similar transportation.
