Galveston : Michelin's recommendations
Located 50mi south of Houston, Galveston Island is both a summer getaway and a year-round historic destination. The compact barrier island—32mi long but just 2mi wide—is particularly known for its beaches, miles of which were included in Texas’ first beach replenishment program. In-city beaches are hectic strips where being “seen” may be the most popular sport.
