Located on the East side of Galveston Island, Beachtown is always one of my favorite places to launch a sunset walk on the beach. The homes are beautiful and if you time things right, you might just have the whole beach to yourself.
Having breakfast for lunch today at IHOP, and it all started with pancakes! This is a great location that overlooks the Seawall and Gulf of Mexico. I lingered here for a while, watching the waves come in.
This is a little more than a souvenir shop on the Seawall, although you can find lots of fun stuff here to take home as a reminder of your trip to Galveston. Murdochs has an awesome deck where you can enjoy a drink and the Gulf breeze while sitting in one of their rocking chairs. It is also a great photo spot for the Ferris Wheel on the Pleasure Pier.
This is one of my favorite beaches in Galveston.
My secret place to launch a long hike on the beach is Beachtown. You drive out towards East Beach, turn in towards the condos, and find a place to park. There are beautiful homes, a nice public Boardwalk for beach access, and long stretches of beach in either direction. Today, I hoofed it in the sun out to East Beach and back. It was a great walk on the beach.
