Galveston is a city and the seat of Galveston County located along the Gulf Coast region in the U.S. state of Texas within the HoustonSugar LandBaytown metropolitan area. As of the 2005 U.S. Census estimate, the city had a total population of 57,466. Galveston is accessible by a causeway linking Galveston Island to the mainland on the north end of the city, a toll bridge on the western end of the island, and by ferry boat service on the east end of the city. Galveston is known for its historic neighborhoods and a ten-mile (16 km) long seawall designed to protect the city from floods and hurricane storm surge. The city houses many tourist attractions. The attractions include the Galveston Schlitterbahn waterpark, Moody Gardens, the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, the Lone Star Flight Museum, a downtown neighborhood of historic buildings known as "The Strand," many historical museums and mansions, and miles of beach front. The Strand plays host to a yearly Mardi Gras festival, Galveston Island Jazz & Blues Festival, Texas Beach Fest, Lone Star Bike Rally, and a Victorian-themed Christmas festival called "Dickens on the Strand" (honoring the works of novelist Charles Dickens, especially A Christmas Carol) in early December. Galveston is also home to the Balinese Room, a historic nightclub, formerly a notorious illegal gambling hall, located on a 600-foot (200 m) pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico. Galveston is the second-largest city in Galveston County in population after League City; League City surpassed Galveston between 2000 and 2005. read full wikipedia reference about Galveston, Texas OTHER POPULAR DESTINATIONS IN TEXAS
