“Those of use who are lucky enough to live by the sea, are lucky enough!” When you are lucky enough to move to Galveston, Texas – there are a few things you’ll want to know about. I’ve included a list of some of my favorites here.

Galveston is a cool town…

We have great weather, fascinating history, fantastic restaurants, good schools, funky shops and boutiques, and the beautiful Gulf Coast environment.
