After you drive across the causeway that connects from the Texas mainland, you enter Galveston, located on a barrier island brimming with Victorian treasures and non-stop fun. A Galveston timeshare getaway means passage to fabulous beaches, exciting family attractions, a robust arts and culture scene and loads of fun, outdoor activities.
A Galveston timeshare puts you within easy reach of animating family attractions like Moody Gardens, an amusement park where you can swim along a lazy river, splash in freshwater lagoons, and cruise on a paddlewheel boat. You can also tour enormous glass pyramids to experience ocean life, a rainforest and exotic animals. If that’s not enough, head down to the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier where you will find amusement rides, carnival games, restaurants and souvenirs shops. If you visit in the heat of summer, cool off at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark and try out the world’s tallest water coaster ride.
Whether you walk, drive, bicycle or ride a horse-drawn carriage, a visit to The Strand is must-do in Galveston. This downtown historic district boasts one of the nation’s largest collections of Victorian buildings that are now converted into restaurants, art galleries, museums and shops, making it a vibrant hub for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Strand is also the place to be during annual festivals that include Galveston Island Jazz & Blues, Mardi Gras and the Christmas-themed “Dickens on the Strand.”
The island’s beaches are another excellent perk of having a Galveston timeshare. A popular family beach, Stewart Beach is clean with plenty of activities and amenities like restrooms, showers, concessions, beach volleyball courts and sandcastle competitions. Hosting summer concerts and festivals, East Beach is the ultimate party beach with an entertainment stage, boardwalk, pavilion and many conveniences.
There is no limit to outdoor recreation at Galveston Island State Park. With barrier islands and access to the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay, this natural playground is where you can enjoy hiking, camping, picnics, fishing, swimming, horse riding, kayaking, mountain biking and viewing a wide variety of wildlife.
For more adrenaline-filled adventure in Galveston, tour opportunities are available involving airboats, helicopter rides, skydiving and jet-boat riding.

Galveston is rich in arts and culture with several art galleries, such as the Galveston Arts Center, and various museums focused on Native American and Texas heritage, historic locomotives, offshore oil industry and children’s interests as well as performing arts venues that include The Grand 1894 Opera House.
