Tree Sculptures, Galveston

4.5
Old tree growth that once shaded the town's Victorian homes was destroyed by Hurricane Ike. Tree Sculptures are a grassroots effort to resurrect the trees with art. Sculpted tree trunks are scattered around the neighborhood between new saplings. Many of the sculptures have a special significance for the people living in the Galveston community, such as Marcy Hanson's tree sculpture of an angel cradling a rabbit, which commemorates her bunny sanctuary. Stop by the Convention and Visitors Bureau first for a brochure that includes a list of the sculptures and a map of their locations.

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
