Always love coming to Galveston Island. Great place to hang out and the restaurants and shops near the cruise ships are really cool. We always stay the night before a cruise and just drink in the island vibe.

You can ride for free. Just be advised it can get very busy during certain times of the day.. Loved it.

The port is a good place to depart from. Best airport to fly into is Hobby. There are all kinds of shuttle services to and from the airport. If you opt to drive it costs to park anywhere between $10-$20 per day. There are some...More

Nice port with calm water. I would recommend taking a day or two and touring the town the Strand and the beach are very nice and there is a lot to do. Great history and food.

We cruise from this port a lot. We usually never have any trouble. I do think it is easier to prepay for my parking at portofglaveston.com. It is only a $5 discount, but any discount is better than not. Our cars are secure, in a...More

We had a rental car but as you said there is plenty of onsite parking. However depending where on the pier your ship docks it may be a long walk, so drop your luggage and any physically challenged folks by the ship first.
