This was a nice way to see the many unique houses and beings it was close to Mardi Gras time there were many decorated. The sculptures themselves were a little difficult to see and of course you can tell that some of them are quite old. The map that we had was a big help. I think we expected something... More

We chose to do our own walking tour after receiving a map from the hotel suggesting a walking path and showing where each of the sculptures were. The first few sculptures were impressive but many of the others were small and not very noteworthy. We enjoyed walking around looking at the architecture of the houses but would have enjoyed that...

Wouldn’t say was worth the time as a driving tour, could be different walking but would be a long walk to see all. The good thing is it is free other that the gas to zig zag from one stop sign to another. It would help if the city would put a sign out by the street so you knew... More

We enjoy the uniqueness of Galveston and a big part of this are the homes located East of downtown. And after Hurricane Ike, you can combine viewing these home with a collection of sculptures carved from the victims of the hurricane, the trees located in the yards of these historic homes. Go by the visitor center and pick up a... More

After Hurricane Ike many trees were destroyed. One woman knew a tree sculptor in Houston who sculpted her tree. Then one after another with downed trees called on him. They are all created according to Galveston themes and the remaining tree size. The funnest one is at a children's park with all kinds of animals, some hidden, but adults will... More

I highly recommend this. Drop by the Visitor Center, get a map and have someone navigate you through the neighborhoods. Most of the sculptures are easily found and some of them are hidden which makes this a fun trip. Don't forget to look up and enjoy the beautiful homes.

It was worth the time and walking to view the different tree sculptures to see what some people were able to do to preserve and make something good out from the bad of the hurricane
