Things to Do in Galveston
Galveston offers you a wealth of entertainment. Spend some time soaking up the sun along the city’s extensive beachfront, or visit the downtown Strand district—home to local restaurants, shops, art galleries and Galveston’s annual Mardi Gras celebration. Be sure to visit these additional area favorites:
Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier – Modeled after a similar pier built in 1943, the Galveston Island Pleasure Pier features 15 rides alongside carnival games and souvenir shops. From the hotel, you can walk about 10 minutes down Seawall Boulevard to take on the Iron Shark, a steel roller coaster with a 100-foot drop and a max speed of 52 miles per hour.

Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark – Beat the Texas heat at this waterpark located 15 minutes from the hotel.

Enjoy Attractions and the Beach During Your Hotel Stay
Galveston is a charming, romantic island nestled in the heart of south Texas with a storied past about discovery, disaster, restoration and perseverance. Having endured the worst natural disaster in US history, known as the Great Storm of 1900, Galveston rose above the ruins, supported by leaders who raised the city by eight feet and 17 feet at the seawall to better protect their homeland.
Today, visitors are lured to Galveston by its 32 miles of relaxing beaches, outstanding restaurants, fabulous downtown shopping, incredible art galleries, exciting entertainment and well-preserved Victorian architecture. More than 2,000 buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Strand district features fantastical Mardi Gras arches, the perfect backdrop for this city's annual Mardi Gras celebration, which attracts thousands of people every year.
This island offers something for everyone. Enjoy the numerous family attractions, admire the famous 19th century architecture or find your perfect spot on the beach. This hotel in Galveston provides easy access to it all!
