Other neighborhoods in Galveston

If find yourself in Galveston and you want to get away from the Seawall crowds then this is a great beach to visit. Most days you’ll find that it isn’t crowded at all, only a few people around. Follow the picturesque white boardwalk to a trail that will lead you to the beach. Be sure to stop and smell the many flowers along the way—just remember to keep off the dunes and watch out for rattlesnakes.

Beachtown

While Beachtown might not have many sights to explore, venturing just a little farther will lead you to top things to see and do like East Beach and Stewart Beach Park.
