Ditch the lights of the city for lights on the pier and sand beneath your toes. Galveston, Texas, has 32 miles of beaches, a pier full of attractions and plenty of festivals and concerts, making this a great summer destination that’s only an hour away from Houston. There is plenty to do if you are into “spooky” travel. Galveston is one of the most haunted cities in America.
