Texas Gulf Coast

4.2
Stretching over 965 km (600 mi) from Louisiana to the Mexican border, the Texas Gulf Coast is the state's main region for outdoor activity and vacation getaways. Dotted with funky seaside villages, expansive national parks, and beautiful golden sand beaches, the Gulf Coast is only an hour's drive from Houston, the state's cultural and commercial hub. For some historical sightseeing, wander through centuries-old downtown Galveston, or head to South Padre Island for a tropical holiday. Plan your trip to Texas Gulf Coast and other United States destinations using our handy United States tour site.
