Galveston, Texas is a southeastern Texas coastal town located about 50 miles south of Houston . Also known as “Galveston Island” – the city is situated on a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.
The town is known for its tourism, cultural arts, family entertainment venues and diversity. Regardless of whether you prefer the opera or a fishing charter as your entertainment – Galveston has got you covered!
Galveston Real Estate is just as diverse and offers a wide variety of home styles and locations.The market offers Galveston beachfront homes and condos, as well as affordable bayside waterfront houses. Add to that the historical charm of large downtown Victorian era mansions, and trendy loft apartments. Once again, the town offers something for everyone.
The island has it’s share of sandy beaches and tall palm trees. The weather is near perfect and warm just about year-round. The winter months does bring cooler temperatures, but you’ll seldom need more than a jacket, even in the “extreme” winter months.
There is always something to do in Galveston. Something is going on nearly every weekend of the year and local businesses hold several events every month. The tourism business is alive and well with Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, all the fun on the Seawall, and plenty of shopping on the strand.
For recreation, you’ll find everything from fishing (both bayside and in the surf), surfing, swimming, a waterpark, and even an occasional kite surfer. Of course the beach draws a big crown when the weather is warm.
Then there is the fascinating Galveston history. Galveston was long ago known as a pirate’s paradise. It played a significant role in the US Civil War, and has been an important port of entry for affecting a large portion of the US economy. The island has also weathered a number of devastating storms. With all of it’s historic building and rebuilding – you won’t soon run out of fascinating things to do an see in Galveston.
That being said, if you ever feel a need to venture to the “big city” – Houston is the 4th largest city in the nation. And it’s less than an hour away from Galveston – a straight shot up Interstate 45.
But why would you want to leave the Island? Everything you need is right here: hundreds of restaurants, major department stores and grocery stores, and even a home store. There are plenty of professional local service providers that you might need for your home.
So, as you can see, there is something for everyone – and all you would need to be comfortable and happy in your island home.
