Galveston Beachs....Dirty?

by bcsod4

I currently live in Missouri but, I am planning to move to Galveston over the summer. I have read many reviews about Galveston having dirty beachs, with muckey water. I have also read several reviews stating that this is not true or that the beach is clean during the summer. Please help this is a major factor in my move...

I am a native Texas (live in Dallas), but have taken many a trip to Galveston. It's true what you've heard about the beach - murky water, lots of seaweed strewn along the beach - but the city is very good about keeping the beaches themselves clean. The town itself is very nice, eclectic, and laid-back. The people who live there have a lot of pride for their town - as you may know, the city was wiped out by a hurricane in 1900. But it was of course rebuilt and many of the older buildings and architecture are historic and beautiful. I think if you don't go to Galveston with the expectation of beautiful, pristine beaches, but enjoy it for what it is and keep an open mind, then you won't be disappointed. It is a fun place!

Yeah, the sands are clean but the water isn't. However, it is basically bath tub water (80's) in the summer, which is very refreshing considering the normal temp of the oceans.
Galveston is also one of the few beaches in Texas where they've banned driving down the beach as well as drinking alcohol (although East Beach still allows the latter), which also makes the experience better. Plus it's still fairly undeveloped and you can pull down a side lane for beach access right off the highway. Galveston the town is very nice as well. Lots of historic stuff to see, and you can always hit some of the sites and shopping in Southeastern Houston.

The beaches are clean. The water is murky, not because of pollution, but becuase of mud and silt from the rivers and the ship that flow into it. It's not murky everyday. On good days when the wind direction is right, the green water (clear water) can be all the way up to the beach.

Have you moved yet? You will be much warmer in Galveston. It is a very laid back tourist town. The off season brings the people that live there out to enjoy the food and fun. Very friendly town. The beach is not Miami. It looks more like Ft. Lauderdale beaches with some dirty sand and sometimes seaweed days -

I stopped swimming in the Gulf in Galveston - East Beach allows some topless nudity and do not take children there. The Moody's of Galveston created Moody Gardens - and they have fresh water pools over looking the gulf, they have water parks, beautiful eco friendly beautiful pyramids.

With all that said - moving to Galveston - here are two things you have to ready for:

100% humidity about 350 days a year - your body does get use to it
If you live near the seawall you will have a breeze of the salty ocean wind everyday.

The salt air rust your car faster then anything I have seen - like two years rust will show up -

ok the good stuff is awesome food in the NON tourist restuarants where it tastes as good and the price is cheap -

the threat of hurricanes keeps you on your toes :)

Travel Tips for Galveston

The Bishop's Palace, The Moody...

by rholloway

The Bishop's Palace, The Moody Mansion and 'The Strip' Shopping on 'The Strip,' old downtown Galveston. It has been restored, or perhaps I should say is a work in progress. Much detail has been given to authenticity, and keeping the 1800-ness in tact.

Hats--A Victorian Necessity

by VeronicaG

Many exquisitely attired ladies paraded on the Strand with beautiful poufy, feathered hats. They were works of art! I became curious about the history of hats--this is what I discovered.

'Millinery has existed in Britain since 1700. In English courts the term milliner was used and this was derived from the term for travelling haberdashers from Milan in Italy'.

'Running parallel to the hat making arts were feather workshops or more correctly workshops called plumassiers where feathers were dyed and made into arrangements. Plumes have always been a status symbol and sign of economic stability'.

'Fortunes were paid by rich individuals for exotic feathered hats. Edwardians were masters in the art of excess and the flamboyant hats of the era are a clear example of this. At one point, whole stuffed birds were used to decorate hats...'

Johnson Space Centre

by keeweechic

The Space Center is the official visitors centre to the Johnson Space Center and covers 1,600 acres. Each attraction is self-guided. The plaza of the centre is the hub from where everything else stems such as the Starship Gallery, Destiny Theatre, Martian matrix & kids space place, The Feel of Space, Space Centre Theater, Mission Status Center and the departure area for the Tram Tour. Trams around the Space Centre depart every 40 mins and take around 90 mins. The Tour takes you behind the scenes, including the X-38 Assembly Building and the Shuttle Mock-up Facility. You will see the Centers old Mission Control Center (MCC) which in its day was the operational hub of every American human space mission since Gemini IV.

Rocket Park is right at the entrance to the Centre and clearly visible from Nasa Road. You used to be able to drive up and walk around yourself free of charge between 7.00a.m. and 6.00p.m. but after 9/11 I don't think you can do that now.

The Price Is WRONG For Seafood!

by H-TownJourneyman about Willie G's

Willie G's is another on the long list of restaurants within the Landry's Restaurants, Inc. chain. I will start out by saying that the location of this restaurant is nice, with it being right off of the harbor of the Port of Galveston, and it's proximity to all the goings-on of the historic Strand District. And the decor is very pleasant, not a low rent scuzzy place, but you would expect decent surroundings from a Landry's establishment. But this is where it's ends for me as far as positives for this place. The menu is very extensive, but the 2 times that I have dined here, I was not impressed with the quality of food. Of the many different appetizers they have available, I have tried the fried calamari and the shrimp gumbo. The calamari was very tough, almost rubbery, and the gumbo very simply very bland, not a lot of taste to it. They have a wide variety of entrees, items such as numerous fish dishes, lobster, shrimp, chicken, steak, and crawfish. The fried catfish I had here was actually not that bad, but the crawfish etouffee i tried was not good at all. I'm not sure what kind of spices they were using here, but it did not taste anything like the traditional cajun dish I am used to. The wait staff was very nice, but the service was nothing extraordinary, and I had trouble getting a refill on my iced tea more than once. My biggest tift with the restaurant would most certainly be the price. While not the most expensive restaurant in Galveston, I certainly think that for the prices here, you would get a much better quality of food. There are much better places to eat seafood on the island, and many don't charge half the price that Willie G's does. Fried Catfish Fillets. Really the only thing I have enjoyed here though.

The Beach

by basstbn

It was a cold and damp day after Christmas - no day for the beach. But we knew out daughters would each be at a beach in Oregon that week, so while making a short visit to Galveston, we had to at least get out of the car and put our feet in the sand for a few minutes.

Along the beachfront, we could still see considerable damage from Hurricane Ike, which had struck the are 14 months before.
