My husband and I spent a few days in Galveston last week. We rented a two bedroom, two bath home with another couple, through VRBO, which was just 3 blocks from the seawall. We took long walks on the blvd at daybreak each morning and enjoyed watching everyone start their day - from the dog walkers on the beach to the joggers on the sidewalk. One thing that impressed me was the cleanliness of the city. And we felt safe wherever we went. Good job Galveston!
