  • If you go to Galveston, the pier is must-see. With nearby restaurants (at the pier there's Bubba Gamp), an amusement park and the waterfront to enjoy. We were in the winter, was a temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit, not encouraged to go to the Park because it was cold and a little windy. So, I recommend go when the weather is milder.

  • You are allowed to change the color, but not the structure of a house in the East End Historic District. This means the houses look the same now as they did in the 1880's when most were built. Most of...  more »
  • Worth a walk calmly in this area, has many shops with handcrafts and sea products, like conhas, and stars.

  • We visited in January so our experience may not be typical. The crowd was pretty light which meant little to no wait lines for the rides. We had a great time and spent a good 5 hours riding the rides. The hawkers working the midway games were not pushy and everyone working was friendly. This was a very fun time and we will definitely so this again when it is a bit warmer. Because this is a pier and on the coast it is very windy. I imagine the wind feels good in warmer weather, but during colder weather you can't get away from the cold wind.
  • Really expensive, but so much fun. I've been a few times over the years and will likely go a few more times at least. Staff is all really friendly and helpful. If you go on cold, misty days, you tend to have zero wait time which is really nice.
  • Unexpected little gem on the tip of the water. Great for couples or groups or families (not for sketchy loners because that's weird.) A little expensive, especially if you're rolling with a lot of people. The roller coaster was actually really good - rivaling Six Flags - and the tall ride that swings you out over the water was so good it was scary. I mean, it was actually scary. I wanted down. Very cool spot and a must-attend if you're in Galveston and you've never gone here.
  • We only had a 45 minutes to see it but had a great time! Rode Iron Shark, Star Swings and Cyclone. No lines, highly recommend going. Would have stayed longer if we could. Loved the beaches.
  • Such a beautiful experience with the wind blowing and sun shining. Many great area's to sit and just view the beauty of the ocean and horizon. Lots of rides and games and foods to enjoy !
