Galveston’s historic downtown spans seventy blocks, and it’s home to historical landmarks, shops, restaurants, and so much more.
Hendley Market – According to the Houston Chronicle, the inventory at Hendley Market “is as eclectic as the planet.” Housed in a building that dates back to 1855, shoppers find antique medical instruments, vintage textiles, and sari scarves from India just to name a few. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome to visit with their owners.
Galveston Water Adventures – Hop aboard the Cruise-N-Time to see an array of colorful birds and fascinating marine life. Passengers may get an up close view of dolphins jumping and playing. For those who want more of a thrill, take a ride on the jet boat that features right angle turns and a maneuver is known as the “Hamilton Spin.”
Galveston Railroad Museum – Nestled at the head of the Strand, the Railroad Museum displays one of the largest railroad collections in the Southwest. Exhibits include “The Depot/The People’s Gallery” and “Panama Railway: Connecting Oceans.”
Fisherman’s Wharf – Fisherman’s Wharf is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city, and it’s popular with locals and visitors alike. The building originally housed a “factory” where shrimp and fish were prepared for shipment across the country, including to President Kennedy at the White House. Guests enjoy friendly service as well as beautiful views, and meals include Parmesan Redfish, Stuffed Whole Flounder, and Maine Lobster.
