Location + Surroundings

  • Amusement park
This vacation rental is located in the charismatic island city of Galveston, Texas, where colossal glass pyramids of house sharks, monkeys, and more, can be found at the famous Moody Gardens, and the Historic Pleasure Pier on the south shore is always illuminated with amusement rides and restaurants. Nature is in abundance on the shores, beaches, and at Galveston Island State Park, while much history lies within the walls of Bishop’s Palace. In fact, the city is home to six historic districts, containing some of the largest and most significant buildings from the 19th century in the U.S. The nearest airport for Galveston visitors is the Scholes International Airport right on the island.

About 50 miles away is the bustling city of Houston, home to NASA, entertainment in the Theatre District, the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and a Historic District where 19th-century architecture is on display.
