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

It is a seawall. It is a great place to watch people go by, both locals and tourists. Summer is of course prime watching time. There are lots of restaurants across the street so you won't have to walk too far to get an ice cream. Go buy a sandwich at Murdoch's and sit on their breezy porch and watch the world amble by...

It now costs a dollar an hour from 10 am until 6 pm to park next to the "free" beaches, the picnic areas, and Murdoch's. There are no meters. You are expected to give payment info over the phone! To an unknown individual or computer! DANGER!!!!!

You have to pay to park on the seawall, I didn't bother as most eateries will let you park your vehicle in their parking lot for an hour, as long as you've eaten there. Or you can use some of the side streets and drag your stuff along. I just think that paying $25 for a spot for 8 hours, everyday, is crazy.

I was pleasantly surprised when we got to the seawall. Very clean - EXCEPT for all the cigarette butts on the ground. Seriously, you have a bad habit and you have to leave it on the ground for other people to look at and clean? Other than that - it was really nice. and the porta potties were a nice surprise.
