When you think of a fun, feisty beach vacation, Texas probably doesn’t come top of mind. Well, it should. Galveston, in particular, offers up warm sand, great weather, and lots of stunning architecture. This barrier island has a flavor all its own that mixes Texas twang with beachy relaxation. Oh, and Galveston vacation rentals are pretty amazing. Where else can you choose between a laid-back beach house, a trendy condo overlooking the historical district, or an Easter egg-colored Victorian home that has more stories to tell than your grandfather?
Galveston is the place that happy, hearty Texans go on vacation. Stroll around the Strand Historic District and fill your saddlebags with big, Texas-sized souvenirs. Switch out your boots for flip flops and hit the beach. East Beach is a secluded gem where you can watch massive freighters chug through the water. Of course, every cowboy and cowgirl needs a place to hang their hat. Your vacation rental from Travelocity acts as the perfect home base for your trip. If you can’t get enough of surf and sand, rent a home right on the beach and fall asleep to the sound of waves each night (no sound machine needed). If you’d prefer a little more luxury, we’ve got plenty of great spots like Light House View by AB Sea Rentals available for rent. Finally, history buffs can tour amazing buildings, like Bishop’s Palace, or they can live history in real life by renting one of the island’s captivating and colorful Victorian homes.
No matter what type of short-term rentals or Galveston hotels you choose, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll get the best deal possible at Travelocity. With the money you save, rent kayaks for a peaceful cruise through the water or rev it up with a night spent at the amusement park at the end of the Pier. When you mix big Texas attitude with supreme beach bumming, you’ll get an unforgettable vacation.
