I love visiting Galveston, TX. There is always something to do. Whether walking around on the strip or walking the beach. The whole place is extremely laid back. You feel like you could be a beach bum for the reat of your life while you are there.

My favorite things to do in Galveston is going to the strip, the candy store is the best, or riding bikes down the seawall. I have never had an issue with any problems the many times I have visited. Pleasure pier is an amazing place to have fun for the whole family. The Rainforest Cafe is a must visit even if the food isn't great.
