Activities and Dining
Start your historic tour of Galveston with The Strand, the downtown district that’s full of 19th-century Victorian architecture, including the Grand 1894 Opera House. Add visits to the Tall Ship ELISSA, Texas Seaport Museum or Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum to help frame the city’s story.
There’s plenty around Galveston to delight families and children of all ages, starting with the striking pyramid designs an interactive attractions and exhibits of Moody Gardens®. And for a full day of slides, splashes and smiles, be sure to make a visit to Schlitterbahn® Waterpark Galveston.
Are you and your family in the mood for fine dining on vacation? You’re in luck, because Galveston is a destination that offers plenty of delicious choices. Enjoy Latin excellence at Rudy & Paco Restaurant & Bar or a mix of American and seafood at Gaido’s or Landry’s® Seafood House.
Seafood and Steak
When you’re on the Gulf Coast of Texas, steak and seafood are prime choices for afternoon or evening meals. There are plenty of places to indulge, but some popular options include Shearn’s Seafood and Prime Steaks, The Steakhouse or Fisherman’s Wharf™.
From bars and delis to little out-of-the-way restaurants, finding lesser-known local flavors can be a rewarding part of visiting a new destination, and Galveston has its share. Check out Jack’s Pub, Mercadito Y Taqueria Incorporated or the simply named Honduras Food while you’re there.
Don’t forget nearby Houston, which was named the “newest capital of great food” by Food & Wine in 2013 and the country’s most exciting food city by Tasting Table that same year. Top choices include Taste of Texas® Restaurant, Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse and Peli Peli.
