Located just 50 miles south of Houston, Galveston Island offers 32 miles of beautiful beaches, excellent medical facilities, numerous attractions, and a strong school system. Galveston has the amenities of a larger city, but with tight-knit small town friendliness. Galveston also has a multifaceted economic base with expanding job markets in tourism, the medical field, marine-related fields, as well as other areas. Education, banking, insurance and marine industries also are job fields that contribute to the strong, diverse economy.
While the beautiful sandy beaches of the island are a major attraction, the beach is only one of dozens of enjoyable leisure-time attractions in Galveston. The excellent restaurants, shops, museums and special events, which lure millions of tourists to the Island each year, also make it a fun place to live. Come see why so many of our residents are proud to call Galveston home.
