The Island truly has a little something for everyone. Galveston has a lively arts scene, a thriving historic district, and because of its tourism industry, a wide variety of restaurants, clubs, and coffee shops.
It's also a college town. How many cities of similar population have a major academic health care center and a campus of a flagship state university, as well as a top-rated community college?
Galveston offers about 34,000 jobs, according to federal statistics. Per capita that's more than just about any other city in the country.
Historic homes, beach houses, waterfront neighborhoods, condos, downtown lofts, and affordable cottages are all charming options for places to call home on the Island. With so many possibilities, you're sure to find a home that complements your way of life.
