We stayed here for a week in Feb 2016 --> http://www.rv123.com/galveston-islan...ign=Newsletter

nice, new park, with stunning sunrise and sunsets right across the street on the beach!

obviously get out on the beach - but we went to the less crowded west end where we could drive on the beach and into the surf and enjoy the privacy !

Tour the old homes - pretty neat if you like that as it used to be a super rich town back in the 1900's..

Go to The Strand section - some eclectic shops the wives really liked...
take the Bolivar ferry just for the uniqueness of it...

Gaidos restaurant has been there, well forever, and the food is good. It's worth a visit. Olympia Grill is over by the cruise terminal, and they have nice outdoor seating and you can watch the cruise ships and tankers.

If you want something a little more upscale, try Rudy and Paco's on Post Office Street

San Luis County Park

A little off the beaten path from high end parks but greatly known for fishing is San Luis County Park. Me and the lady frequently take weekends there, and take the tow along into Galveston for dinner etc. Nights we spend fishing in the park! 😁

And I am told I forgot to say that the Gumbo Diner on the seawall is a must if you enjoy good gumbo!

The official city website is pretty comprehensive:
GALVESTON.COM: Official Website of Galveston Island, Texas Tourism & Marketing

Google has a good list for the usual tourist sites:

Some of our favorite eateries include...

The Strand: Star Drug Store, The Original Mexican Cafe, Mosquito Cafe, Olympia Grill

Seawall: The Spot, Salsa's, Gaido's, Mario's Seawall

Just scratching the surface here of the non-chain stuff. The DW and I always stop at the Spot upon arrival; that's always first. Mario's on the Seawall is a little bit upscale Italian, but the best pizza is actually at Mario's Ristorante on 61st; that's the best mom-and-pop Italian joint in town.

This list is pretty damn casual, there are a ton of fancier places to go, but you won't have a problem finding them. We usually stick to the funky, casual stuff.
