Situated on the coast of Texas overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston is rapidly growing as an embarkation and disembarkation port for many cruise lines. It’s a relaxing port city, with plenty of places to shop and dine out before or after your cruise, while the area has some charming Victorian architecture and ornate churches should you wish to explore. Galveston is also just 45 miles from Houston, so travel to the port is simple and there are some fantastic attractions nearby.
Primary amongst these is the NASA Space Center. It’s a family-friendly destination, with loads of fascinating exhibits and interactive elements including simulations of rocket launches and the chance to try zero gravity. You’ll be able to tour the training facilities, and see where famous astronauts learned their craft. For something a bit more down-to-earth, Hermann Park offers huge variety, including a golf course and its own scenic railroad. It’s also home to the Houston Zoo, with over 4,500 exotic animals to see during your visit. And don’t forget to check out the Strand, a trendy district that’s home to many festivals throughout the year.
The currency in Galveston is the US Dollar. Galveston is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -5).
