Travel Tips for Galveston

Republic of Texas History

by msbrandysue

While walking up and down the Seawall I found a small memorial to the Texas Navy. Coming from a military family I always make sure to stop and ponder the men who gave their lives and careers for our freedom. Again, this is a small plaque across the street from the seawall but I think it tells alot about the culture of Galveston.

Galveston is very proud of who they are. They are an important area for Texas and the troops have spent much time here protecting this land and it's an important area for victories.

Thank you to those who may be reading this who have helped protect this beautiful state and our wonderful USA!!

San Jacinto Memorial

by keeweechic

The San Jacinto Battleground State Park is in La Porte, north of Galveston and east of Houston. The famous battle of San Jacinto which brought Texas its independence was fought on this site and changed its course of history. This 1,200 acre site commemorates the Battle and preserves the battleground on which General Sam Houston and his troops achieved Texas' independence by defeating a Mexican Army led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna on April 21. 1836.

Old Fashioned Ice Cream and Candy Shop

by VeronicaG about La King's Confectionery

As a child did you ever dream of being locked in a candy store overnight with every sugar coated treat and chocolate confection within arm's reach? This would be that candy store! Not only does La King's Confectionery have cases and cases of the most delectable candy you could want, but it also is equipped with an old-fashioned ice cream counter.

All types of chocolates await you: chocolate covered marshmallows, chocolate creams, chocolate fudge...chocolate,chocolate and more chocolate. Jellybeans in brilliant colors, hard striped candies, soft pastel candies all in individual size or novelty packaging.

The candy counter was crowded with patrons with sizeable sweet tooths, so we quickly got in line with those people wanting to satisfy a craving for something smooth and oh so creamy...a crispy cone topped with a mound of ice cream!

Many histortical buildings on the strand.

by mafootje

Galveston has many beautifull historical buildings on the strand. In front of most of them are one or more information signs about the history.

The following text is taken from the information sign in front of this building.

Hutchings, Seally & Co. Buildings

Four decades after joining in partnership, George Ball,John Henry Hutchings and John Seally Employed prominent Galveston Architect Nicholas J.Clayton to design office buildings for their Ball, Hutchings & Co. Commission and banking operations.
Built in 1895 as two individual but connected structures, thes buildings complemented Galveston's Strand avenue, know at the time as the "Wall street of the southwest."

The buildings' renaissance revival style is represented by the heavily rusticated stone arches featured on its entryways, terra cotta detailing on the parapets and entablatures, evenly spaced columns and pilasters, elaborate stone cornice and arcading windows.

The foundation walls are six feet wide at the base and made of pressed brick with ashlar patterned sandstone facing.
The corner building which features the name "Hutchings" on its entablature, was originaly constructed for John H. Hutchings.
The adjoining office building featuring the name "Sealy" on its entablature, was built for John Seally. These majestic buildings are reminders of a grand era in Galveston's history and philanthropic legacy of these early businessmen.

The Dickens Feast--Unveiled!

by VeronicaG

The FEAST was sumptuous! The beautifully laid tables set with gold plates and amber goblets sat upon deep burgundy cloths embroidered with gold swirls. Lavish centerpieces accented with pine cones and boughs and tall brass candle holders topped with glass votives were gathered together with touches of gilded leaves and crimson flowers. Bottles of Merlot and Chardonnay waited to be sampled.

The feast began with Apple Fizz then progressed to the following courses: Creme of Asparagus Soup, Spring Salad with Romaine, Stilton Cheese and Bacon, topped wih a Vinaigrette Dressing, Roasted Prime Rib, Roasted Baby Red and Sweet Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Baby Carrots with Orange Glaze, Hot Rolls with Butter and concluding with Plum Pudding Cake with Plum Sauce. We'll remember our meal for a long, long time!
