Owner description: Walk along this eight-mile seawall built to protect Galveston from the raging winds and waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Reviewed 12 November 2017 via mobile

My husband and I rode our bikes from the hotel and down the seawall. There were some sidewalk closures due to construction (61st St) and another in the direction of Pleasure Pier. I assume this construction is happening now because it's the off-season for tourists. We tried to ride along the beach, but the sand is loose and there are occasional granite boulders for the jettys. In between those obstacles, we did had fun playing Pokemon Go, eating frozen yogurt and pizza, and stopping at academy for a hat to my ears warm and bicycle-smartphone mounts. There are so many Pokemon spawns that are rare to East Texas, lots of gyms, and PokeStops! If you're not into that, there are historical markers and statutes, photo opportunities, shopping, frozen yogurt shoppes, people doing photoshoots on the beach, jettys to wander out onto and watch the waves roll in or to fish from, and kids & dogs playing in the sand and waves.

Lots of restaurant choices when you cross the road. Anything from pizza to IHOP to expensive local seafood. Most of the souvenir shops, bars, & fancy restaurants are on the NE end of Seawall Blvd. Watch the traffic when you cross! It's a very busy road. Most intersections have a button on the traffic light for pedestrians to press.

Our hotel is not far from the seawall. It's a beach along the seawall boulevard and a nice place for a walk or just sitting there for the sunset. There's so many restaurants on the other side of the street.

Lots of stairs, warnings for current conditions, and very clean. Plenty of parking available makes it easy to make a quick stop.

The view is wonderful, the waves crashing, very relaxing! The beach was free of debris and there are lots of restaurants, bars and activities for all ages. I like that much of the walk was lighted. The fun pier with rides, food and activities is such a nice addition. The water isn't as blue as the Caribbean but the sunrises and sunsets are beautiful!

It was very nice and peaceful. The seawall was clean. Plenty of benches and beaches to enjoy along the seawall.
