NEARBY ATTRACTIONS IN GALVESTON

The cruise terminal is a short walk from a variety of attractions, including The Strand historic district. Strand Street is one block inland from Harborside Drive, and covers about 34 square blocks, between 25th St. and 19th St. to the east, and from Harborside Blvd. on the north to Post Office Street to the south. If it’s operating, the trolley system circulates throughout the district (see page 244). The Galveston Railroad Museum at 25th St. and Strand is a good starting point for a tour, with 40 pieces of rolling stock, model railroad layouts, and on most Saturdays, short rides on the Harborside Express. $10/$5 ages 4-12. The Galveston Visitors Center is two blocks down on Strand, by 23rd St. The Galveston County Museum (free) is by 23rd and Market. You’ll find shops and restaurants throughout the area, with Post Office St. noted for its art galleries. Major historic buildings include the 1894 Opera House and the 1861 Custom House, both near Post Office and 20th. Back on the waterfront, Pier 21, just blocks from the cruise terminal, is home to the Texas Seaport Museum (including the Tall Ship Elissa), restaurants, and a hotel. Museum admission is $12 adults, $9 ages 5-18. The Pier 21 Theater shows films about The Great Storm and pirate Jean Laffite. Each film is $6/$5 ages 6-18, or see both for $10/$8. Pier 19 next-door is home to the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum. The floating museum focuses on energy development in the Gulf. Admission is $9/$5 ages 7-18.
