Owner description: Walk along this eight-mile seawall built to protect Galveston from the raging winds and waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

We dcide to visit Galveston following some family sugestions.
We visit the Seawall and even though is a nice beach with some interesting features we didn't feel anything out of the conventional.
Maybe we didn't spend enough time (just 2 hours) but that was our impression.

you can walk along the seawall and watch the Gulf of Mexico for more than 8 miles without getting your feet et or sand in your shoes or you can walk down the steps on sit on the beach. The water is always changing and the people watching is also fun. While the Seawall itself is free the City of Galveston is implementing a paid parking program starting on approximately May 1, 2011, but the maximum rate for the whole day is just $8.00.

Just walking down the Seawall, just above Galveston beach, is relaxing. With shops and restaurants galore across the street, you could easily spend a day here.
