  • Parking is always a problem on Galveston Island, Texas. Once you find a spot, park and don't move your car!
  • Traffic is rarely a problem unless you are on the Seawall or 61st Street (a major artery) at peak hours. The Seawall just takes patience, but for 61st, you can scoot across to 57th on Broadway and get to the same places in less time.
  • For a fun diversion, catch the free ferry on the East End to Bolivar Peninsula. You can get a good look at the lighthouse and catch the next ferry back. You'll enjoy dolphin-spotting, feeding the seagulls from the back of the ferry, and a wonderful 20-minute boat ride!
  • If you love beautiful old homes in the Queen-Anne style, take a driving or walking tour of Galveston's Silk Stocking Historic District bordered by 25th Street, 23rd Street, Avenue P., and Avenue K.
  • Come to Galveston the first weekend of December to enjoy 'Dickens on the Strand.' You'll feel that you have traveled back in time when you see everyone in Victorian costumes playing games, going to events, and eating foods such as they had in merry old England in the late 1800s.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
