Hard to Beat Acts in Galveston

Everywhere you look in Galveston, there’s an opportunity for natural beauty and slip-sliding fun!

Exterior of Bishops Palace

Galveston's Grand Palace

The style would most properly be called Chateausque for “the intricate combination of materials, cast iron galleries and complex roof system.” We’re always especially delighted by the ornate carvings of plants, animals, and mythic beasts that adorn the home’s exterior. The basement floor, once a kitchen, now houses a shop, but the upper three floors have been preserved in all their original splendor. You’ll marvel at 14-foot coffered ceilings, stained glass windows, the parlor’s imposing fireplace, and the many other stunning idiosyncrasies of this certified National Historic Landmark. Self-guided tours are available every day, and you can call to inquire about guided tours and other special events.
