Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston features the most exciting collection of water rides in Texas. A one-mile river connects three distinct sections of Schlitterbahn in Galveston. The water park is home to four high thrill speed slides including Rohr!, Cliffhanger, and the immersive Screaming Serpents body slide. Surfenburg has raft rides and water coasters with great picnic pavilions and the Tiki Tikes Kids Area for kids of all ages. The world’s TALLEST water coaster MASSIV Monster Blaster can be found in Blastenhoff with a wave pool – Shipwreck Harbor, and a swim up bar.
After the hurricane of 1900, Galvestonians planted thousands of live oak trees to restore beauty after the storm. 108 years later hurricane Hurricane Ike wiped almost 17,000 of them off the map. The remnants of those damaged that remained rooted to the ground have become incredible works of art as artists breathed a second life into something Mother Nature attempted to destroy. These sculptures can be seen tucked into gardens and nestled in side yards for everyone to enjoy.
See sculptures such as:
Birds of Galveston
Tall Ship Elissa Figurehead
Pod of Dolphins & Mermaids
The Tinman & Toto (at the childhood home of King Vidor, “Wizard of Oz” Director)
Angel cradling a bunny
Large Pelican & Fish
and many more….
Our one-of-a-kind facility gives visitors the opportunity to learn about the offshore oil and gas industry, all while being aboard a retired jack-up drilling rig. Visitors take the skywalk out onto the drill floor of the rig, or visit the exhibits on the pipe deck from the first floor of the museum.
The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum offers guided and self-guided tours of a retired jack-up drilling rig. The rig is a mat-supported jackup that was built in 1969 by Bethlehem Steel.
There are three floors within the museum that include scale models and interactive displays that visitors can explore through a self-guided tour, providing a close-up look at what life is like on a drilling rig. It houses some of the equipment that has been historically used to tap the vast natural energy resources beneath the world’s oceans.
The information covered includes such topics as seismic technology, production, exploration, and the history of offshore oil and gas.
This is a must-stop for children and adults interested in the science behind oil exploration, and it also allows an educational look at an industry that has been historically strong in Texas.
Galveston Fishing Pier was built in 1971, and has been a favorite spot for fishermen for over 40 years. Now gloriously rebuilt after being severely damaged during Hurricane Ike, the Pier takes its rightful place back as one of the Island’s favorite destinations. Families have been visiting and re-visiting the pier for generations. For some it has become a family tradition.
Galveston Fishing Pier has been a great provider of fishing and fun for countless thousands over the years. It’s the longest privately-owned pier between Texas and Maine. The World Record smooth puffer (weighing in at 30 pounds) and the Texas state record tarpon (at a crazy 220 pounds!) — were both caught at Galveston Fishing Pier!
While you are here you will want to enjoy the taste of the Gulf and a casual dining experience at Galveston’s premier over-the-water destination, Jimmy’s on the Pier. Each day the chef is creating one of kind, mouthwatering specials featuring fresh fish direct from the local fish market. We are already famous for our Fish Tacos, Burgers and more…
