Most Popular Area Attractions

Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary

TX Attractions

Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary

Located on the Bolivar Peninsula, the Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary is set in Galveston Bay in the Houston area.

This Gulf Coast sanctuary is comprised of salt marshes, mudflats, uplands, and beaches. Thousands of wading birds and wintering shorebirds – including endangered Piping Plovers and threatened Snowy Plovers – live in the sanctuary.

The mudflats, near the mouth of the Galveston Bay, were formed by the sediments in the North Jetty building up since the 1800s. Invertebrates live in the mudflats and are joined by the shellfish and marine organisms living in the adjacent salt marshes. 

Bird watchers from across the globe visit this Houston sanctuary each year. Visitors also love to catch the blue crabs, flounder, and trout along the Bolivar Peninsula.

Fort Travis Seashore Park

Located on the southern tip of the Bolivar Peninsula along the Texas Gulf Coast, Fort Travis Seashore Park was once the site of many fortifications – some dating back to 1816. Jane Long, known as the "mother of Texas," defended a fort at the site in her early 20s. The construction on Fort Travis was completed in 1899 in the Houston area.

The sea wall, still present today, was constructed in 1900. The fort was home to troops that defended the Port of Galveston and was expanded in 1942 to station 2,500 troops. In 1949 the fort was dismantled leaving only the seawall. Visitors today to the 60-acre park will see the grassy areas, picnic areas and BBQ grills along with the sea wall.

Galveston Island State Park

Covering over 2,000 acres, Galveston Island State Park is located on the Texas Gulf Coast in the eastern region of the Houston metro area. Set near the city of Galveston, Galveston Island is open daily, and offers nature viewing, hiking, biking, swimming, and picnicking.

Visitors are encouraged to try the Galveston Island State Park Points of Interest Driving Tour, or try bird watching – as this Texas state park is found along the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail.

Port of Galveston

TX Attractions

Port of Galveston

Encompassing more than 850 acres along the Galveston Bay, the Port of Galveston was established in 1825 in what was originally part of Mexico.

It is the oldest Gulf of Mexico port, located west of New Orleans. The port was one of the busiest ports exporting cattle, cotton and a variety of commodities, before it was damaged in the 1900 Galveston Hurricane.

This Gulf Coast port manages an assortment of cargo and is the home port for Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Line ships and the Galveston Railroad.

While at the port, schedule time to visit the Texas Seaport Museum to tour the historic ships, including the 1877 Elissa.
