This is the La reportiste with an article on my most recent excursion to Galveston Island, Texas. Having had the recent opportunity to visit Galveston Island, I fell in love with it. Located 50 miles south of Houston, Texas in the Gulf of Mexico, this Island offers the perfect accommodations if you love the friendliness of a small town with the amenities of a larger city.
Galveston also offers The Mardi Gras which runs January through March. (depending on Lent)
So, why not kick off your sandals, don a straw hat, some sunglasses and a sand chair to sit, walk or meander leisurely along the coastline, you won't be sorry.
For more information and a wide array of beautiful photographs of the city and points of interest, visit http://www.galveston.com and enjoy!
