Galveston in Pictures

Galveston was a lot of fun and a short drive from Houston. It reminded me a lot of Seaside- I could only imagine how packed this town gets during spring break and the summer! I wished that we had a wee bit more time to spend here, but I have feeling we will be going back to Texas sooner than later. :-)

The seawalk in Galveston. Reminded me of Seaside! There were tons of people out running on it- made me jealous. 

This pier was completely destroyed and re-built after Hurricane Ike

Re-built pier

Port Bolivar peninsula was a free 15 minute free ride from Galveston. It must flood a lot here because everything was raised- houses, stores, schools, etc.

Questions for you:

Has anyone else ever been to Galveston or the Houston area? If so, what was your favorite "tourist" attraction?
