The Seawall, Galveston

(3.6/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Take a 16.6 km (10.3 mi) walk on one of the longest continuous sidewalks in the world, The Seawall. It was built to protect the city from the destructive power of waves. On this 5.2 m (17 ft) high wall, you'll see long stretches of murals that depict underwater life painted by children. You'll encounter a number of statues and historical markers throughout the site. The sidewalk is wide and suitable for jogging and cycling. You'll see shops and restaurants along the wall as well. Our Galveston travel itinerary planner makes visiting The Seawall and other Galveston attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
