Cruise from Galveston

You know the song, made famous by Glen Campbell. You probably know that the city was devastated by hurricane in 1900, famously recounted in the book Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson. You may even know that the city serves as Houston's beach town, lying as it does 45 minutes south by car. But until you explore the shops and restaurants of the city's stunning Strand historic district, or drive its streets to marvel at the restored Victorian mansions that line her streets, or boogie in the beach bars along Seawall Boulevard with a brew in hand, you can't say you know Galveston—a hidden historical and fun-time Texan gem. Come find out for yourself.
