An interesting place that features a number of fascinating activities. Galveston Island is just 50 miles south of Houston and is Texas’ most beautiful, historic and entertaining island. Visitors to this tropical paradise are treated to 32 miles of sun-drenched beaches, miles of historical Victorian-era architecture, countless exciting attractions, 20 square blocks of shopping on Galveston’s Historic Downtown Strand District and so much more. This area caters to those who wish to escape the encroaching winter cold, as the region is in a temperature zone that keeps the weather in the 60's, even in January.
NASA and Galveston are approximately 30 minutes apart by car. It is easy to stay in one area and visit the other.
