What a surprise to see all the lovely, colorful, restored homes. We drove up and down the streets and took photo after photo. Just an enjoyable view of picturesque homes.

Homes are just beautiful, such detail and craftsmanship. If you like historical things this is worth at least a drive through, Modern homes are just missing something compared to these homes.

It is incredible to believe that so many of these beautiful homes are still standing after so many destructive storms have "rolled up" huge piles of broken homes and buildings--as well as tons of sea water. The sea wall has done a job to protect this end of town! This is a great area to either walk or drive to... More

Many homes in this area of Galveston have been restored beautifully! Take time to walk by the homes (or do a segway tour) so you can absorb the beauty and the history.

We drove through this older preserved area of mansions and large homes. Some in disrepair others restored. Reminded me of Cape May, NJ or Lewiston, DE.

We slowly drove the streets between 12th and 19th from Broadway down to Market. From the narrow shot gun house to Bishop Palace, there were many beautiful and unusual houses. Would enjoy a walking tour during a cooler part of the year.

Such beautiful homes here. Made me sad I couldn't travel back to the late 1800s to see life back then when these were new.
