Staying in town or in Galveston’s Historic District has it’s own set of perks and is very different from the West End or far East End. Most* homes in town and the historic district are walking distance to the seawall, the beach, many restaurants, The Historic Pleasure Pier and within a few minutes drive of The Strand and Post Office streets, shopping, museums, the Bolivar Ferry, plenty of other attractions, things to do, grocery stores, UTMB (University of Texas Medical Branch), Texas A&M on Pelican Island, Shriner’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House of Galveston.
In town and historic district rental homes are perfect for families who want to “live like a local”, those on the island to work and for those who are needing to be close to a loved one seeking medical treatment at Galveston’s UTMB, which is a level 1 trauma, level 1 burn center and one of the largest, most technologically sophisticated emergency care facilities in the world.
There are so many great local restaurants in this area to choose from, many of the best ones are hidden gems. Just ask a Ryson Vacation Planner about their local favorites!
From just about any* home in this area, guests not only can walk to the seawall and beach, but can walk right out the front door and circle a few blocks to see registered historical homes, landmarks and walk the grounds that is written about in our island’s history.
*If being close to the beach or mentioned places are important, please be sure to inquire with a Ryson Vacation Planner about the specific details of each home.
