“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 fascinating history, fantastic restaurants, good schools, funky shops and boutiques, and the beautiful Gulf Coast environment.

Here are essential numbers from my contact list and my guide to living the good life.

I always say: “Those of us lucky enough to live by the sea, are lucky enough!”
– Tom Schwenk
