Galveston - Island Living on a Budget

Galveston, Texas is a well-known vacation destination with beautiful vistas and plenty of things to do. But if you're trying to stretch your vacation dollar, there are still plenty of activities that are free on the island and just as much fun. So go for the sights and the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, but keep your money in your pockets and see how far you can travel.

Obviously, there's the beach. Keep in mind, however, that it does have a fair number of paid beaches. Be sure to pick your spot correctly, so that you can park and sunbathe for free.

Bird watching is a favorite activity of island visitors. The sea birds of the area, coastal habituating, and migratory birds are all present on the island most of the year, and during the right times you can see some unique species. Special times are always at daybreak and nightfall, since that's when the water birds scavenge for their dinner.

If you enjoy marine life, you must check out the Sea Turtle Research facility on the island. It is only one of a few in the country. A free tour offers insights into many aspects of a sea turtle's life, allows you to view a variety of species, and even contains a hatchery.

Remember, if all else fails on Galveston island, you can always go fishing or window shopping.
