There are many fun things to do in Galveston, Texas. Year round mild weather makes it a great place to visit 12 months out of the year. The sheer history of Galveston Island can spark the interest of history buffs from all around. European settlers first came to Galveston Island in 1816. The Port of Galveston was established in 1825 and the rest is history. The city was actually the main Navy port durint the Texas Revolution. Also, Galveston was, in fact, the Capital of The Republic of Texas. There is a tremendous amount of information and even artifacts along The Galveston Strand district that can be found.
Galveston has year round festivities for visitors and locals to enjoy. From shrimp festivals, Mardi Gras, Dickens on the Strand, to Bike Rallies, Speed Boat Races, and so many others - there is always something going on at Galveston Island.
If I had to tell what my favorite things to do in Galveston is.... well it would have to be Fishing the beautiful Galveston Bay Complex. Our year round fishing is excellent. Here at Fishing Galveston Tx we offer year round fishing trips, flounder gigging charters, and even Galveston Bay Excursions. Summer time fishing finds us on the Galveston Jetties and Bay fishing for speckled trout, redfish, flounder, sharks, and so many other saltwater species. We also are flounder gigging year round, and this is a great night time activity after a day spent on the Galveston Beaches.
The Fall and Winter months will find us out on the Galveston Marsh and Bays chasing redfish, speckled trout and flounder. Birds from all over call our wetlands home during the winter, and are a joy to see as we are reeling in the fish of a lifetime! Canadian Snow Geese, speckled bellies, RedHead ducks, Gadwalls, Wigeons, Blue Winged Teal, and many many other migratory birds will claim our marsh home during this time. During these months, our Galveston Fishing Charters are like a fishing trip and Galveston bird watching trip rolled into one fantastic adventure!
