Galveston

Galveston is a coastal city located on Galveston Island in the U.S. state of Texas. It is located on the Gulf Coast of the United States, approximately 50 miles southeast of Houston. Galveston is the county seat of Galveston County and the only incorporated municipality in the county. The city has a population of approximately 50,000 people and is a popular tourist destination.

Galveston is known for its beaches, seafood restaurants, and historical sites. It is home to the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, the Grand 1894 Opera House, and the Moody Gardens, among other attractions. The city is also home to the University of Texas Medical Branch, one of the oldest medical schools in the country.

Galveston has a long and rich history, beginning with its settlement by the Karankawa Indians in the 16th century. In 1845, the city was annexed by the Republic of Texas and later became part of the United States. During the 19th century, Galveston was a major port of entry for immigrants and a major center of trade and commerce.

The city was devastated by the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900, which destroyed much of the city and killed an estimated 8,000 people. In the aftermath of the hurricane, the city was rebuilt and the seawall was constructed to protect it from future storms.

Today, Galveston is a vibrant and bustling city, with a thriving economy and a rich cultural heritage. The city is home to numerous festivals, events, and attractions, and is a popular destination for tourists from around the world.
