This is a place that you need to visit when you're in Galveston. A historical area with the victorian style houses. Some of them are not well kept but most of them are still beautiful.

We drive around the historical area. The craftsmanship building the old homes is unbelievable. It is worth taking the time to drive around slowly and enjoy the history.

Lots of old buildings and homes and churches. Some have tours, some you just drive by and marvel at their beauty.
