Why Galveston is the Perfect Place to Stay in the Summer

Galveston has a long history of being the place to escape to during the sweltering Texas summer. Cool Gulf waters, gentle coastal breezes, and the slow pace of Island life bring thousands of visitors to our shores every summer.

Easily accessible from nearby cities like Houston, Dallas and Austin, Galveston Island has a unique historic vibe full of coastal charm. Dine at a variety of local restaurants, bakeries or coffee houses that specialize in fresh cuisine and local seafood. Stroll through the plethora of antique stores and art galleries in the Historic Downtown Strand District. Or, tour architectural gems that date back to the time Galveston was known as the “Wall Street of the South.” 

What are the Best Summer Activities in Galveston?

Our summer vacation rental guests love swimming, beachcombing, fishing, birding, surfing, SUP and kayaking along 32 miles of Galveston Island beaches.

There are also a host of free activities for visitors to enjoy, including:

  • Galveston Ferry (watch for dolphins!)
  • Galveston Artwalk
  • Beach and Bay Exploration walks at Galveston Island State Park
  • Galveston Family Beach Challenge
  • Movie Nite on The Strand
  • Music Nite on The Strand
  • Galveston Beach Band family concerts at Ashton Villa

When Should I Book My Summer Vacation Rental?

Today! Galveston is a popular summer vacation destination, so book early for the best selection. We accept online reservations up to 12 months in advance. We are able to book via phone through the end of the following calendar year. 

Our busiest booking time begins in January. If you have specific dates you are interested in you’ll want to keep that in mind. Guests with large groups, or those looking for longer beach vacations, often have the best luck booking 4-8 months ahead of time. 

Can’t plan that far in advance? Don’t worry! We are always happy to welcome last minute reservations too! Sometimes the weather is just too perfect to stay at home, and those dog days of summer are definitely better spent at the beach. Last minute availability can be limited, especially during Memorial Day and July 4th. 

Speaking of dog days — we have many pet friendly vacation homes that would love to welcome your whole family! 

BONUS TIP: We typically offer great specials for early bird bookers in November & December. Subscribe to our emails and/or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to save big on your vacation all year long!

While Galveston has a lot to offer visitors all year long, the summer months are when this coastal gem really shines. Our rental team wants to help you plan the perfect beach trip. Need help selecting the perfect home for your group? Want the local secrets about the events, activities and restaurants you shouldn’t miss? Our Reservationists are here to help! Book online 24/7, call us at 409.797.5500, or email us at info@sandnsea.com.

We look forward to welcoming you to Galveston!
