Galveston
An old colonial city and a busy cruise ship port less than an hour's drive from Houston, Galveston sits on Galveston Island and serves as a popular vacation destination for both domestic and international travelers.
Appreciate the collections at Lone Star Flight Museum and Galveston Island Railroad Museum and Terminal. Popular historic sites such as The Grand 1894 Opera House and Bishop’s Palace are in your itinerary. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of The Strand, take an in-depth tour of The Bryan Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at East Beach, and contemplate the long history of Ashton Villa.

To find reviews and tourist information, refer to the Galveston travel itinerary planner.

Baton Rouge to Galveston is an approximately 5.5-hour car. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or take a bus. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Baton Rouge in August since evenings lows in Galveston dip to 80°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive back home.
