Houston, the fourth most populous city in the United States, lies inland approximately 55 miles from Galveston Island. In one day in Houston, visitors can watch a professional sports game - four American teams call the city home - and then relax on board a sailboat or on the balcony of a lovely house or hotel. Gastronomy buffs, rejoice. Houston is a city that loves to eat! There are over 10,000 restaurants here, offering a wide variety of delicious cuisine.
Galveston Island is a barrier island on the Texas Gulf Coast offering various cultural and historical attractions, and 30 miles of stunning beaches. There are no less than 14 museums and 20 art galleries for you to enjoy, but make sure you leave some time for relaxing by the seaside. There is so much to see and do during luxury Houston & Galveston holidays.
