The calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico fringe Seawall Boulevard. In some places, only a short strip of walkway separates the two. Dip your toes in the sun-warmed water or walk along the sandy shore and admire the view.
Drive along Seawall Boulevard and cast admiring glances at the turquoise Gulf of Mexico, which creates a stunning backdrop to historic Galveston. A mural on the seawall adorns the coastline with artistic images of sea life and beach scenes. The nearby Strand Historic District is a great place to stroll, shop or simply take in the charming atmosphere.
