“Love walking the seawall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Anytime of year walking the seawall is relaxing. Restaurants and stores on one side and the beach on the other. Many people rent surreys and ride or skateboard, bike you name it.

“Great view of the Gulf -”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Lovely walk and so nice that it was not busy when we were here. Had the beach pretty much to ourselves - lots of birds to watch.

Not a surprise that any parking nearby including parking on the beach is only available at a price - so be prepared to pay - like most everything in Galveston.

“A Work in Progress”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

The view of the ocean was spectacular. The Pleasure Pier is a must see. We were here before the 2008 hurricane and it would appear that it is still being rebuilt from that. We were disappointed.

“Galveston Seawall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Sometimes the best things you get to experience are actually free. I've been walking and driving along this seawall for over 50 years and never get tired of it. If you like to jog it's great, if you like to walk it's great, if you like to just sit and stare at the Gulf it's great. Doesn't matter what time of the day or night you visit the seawall it always manages to help de-stress you after a long day or night of working. What's nice is if you want solitude you can walk alone at the East end and if you want lots of action just head towards the center and the west. Great entertainment just people watching while you're strolling along.

“always enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We always enjoy driving along the seawall and seeing all the beach activities. We had not seen Pleasure Pier before..it is an amusement park built on the pier where the old Flagship Hotel used to be.
