I read Galveston had some older Victorian homes but I didn’t realize it would be a 10 block area of very well-kept Victorians. I didn’t quite make it through the whole Historic District, as it’s branded on the street signs, however I liked what I saw. The Historic District is centered around Post Office St from Downtown to the east about 10 or so blocks.
The nice thing about the Historic District is that it is wedged in between two areas dense with restaurants and bars. Walk a street to one end, have lunch. Walk back on another street, have a beer. Repeat. Its a nice way to spend the day.
