Life in Galveston
Galveston, Texas is a tourism-centric beach town on an island in southeast Texas offering one of the most unique locations for a residency program in the country. Part of being a city built for tourism means having amazing food and lots of fun things to do. During the summers, Galveston tends to be busy with lots of tourists from all over the region who travel here for our beaches. In the wintertime, the island becomes less crowded and the beaches colder, but there is never a lack of fun activities. Galveston holds the second largest organized Mardi Gras event in the country every February. Along with other marquee events such as the Lone Star Rally and Dickens on the Strand, Galveston offers year-round excitement for residents to partake in during their free time. Some other activities our residents enjoy include running on the seawall, fishing, visiting the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, Art Walk on the Strand, and relaxing at the beach. If you still need more, Houston and all the amenities are within a one hour drive, which means that life in Galveston truly offers access to any and every activity outside of residency one could want, all while being located on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
