Depending on what you are doing, you will most likely want to rent a car to get around Galveston. If you are just hitting the beach at your hotel every day you will be fine without one, but to get to the Strand District or Moody Gardens you will need some transportation. Galveston has a working trolley system that runs along Seawall Boulevard to the Strand District. The fare is only a dollar for adults and 50 cents for children.
