  • It's the Island, man! Galveston Island is only about 50 miles from Houston, but it's a world apart in spirit. Living here is special, with a set of special rules ask locals about Island Time or the Republic of Galveston Island.
  • Mardi Gras!Mardi Gras is the biggest party of the year. Parades, free-flowing spirits, beads and general celebration abound. Pick a place on The Strand to take part of the festivities and feast on bugs and other Cajun specialties at Benno's on Seawall.
  • Beachside Living!There's a lot of beach on the island, from West End to the State Park. You can rent to own in one of the historic neighborhoods or in a newish high-rise building and still be within walking distance of a public beach. There's a wide range of prices, from about $500 to $2,000 or more, and good availability.
  • Humidity (and mosquitoes)!Humidity is just another reason to get to the beach as often as possible. Visit the Rainforest and Aquarium Pyramids at Moody Gardens and explore other exhibits there as well.
  • Hurricanes!Galveston is subject to some severe weather, but locals take it in stride. Much of the island was destroyed in 1900 and suffered severe damage in 2008 from Storm Ike. New building codes require storm engineering, and many homes are built on stilts to accommodate a possible tidal surge. Galvestonians are as likely to party as to evacuate, and a favorite place to enjoy themselves is Jack's on Seawall.
  • Grand Old City! About one third of the city was destroyed in 1900 in The Great Storm. The movie, which plays daily in Galveston, is fascinating. Hotel Galvez was built in 1911 and looks proudly out to the sea. Vacation rentals are popular here, as well, but you can negotiate a month-to-month lease and stay all year.
  • Neighborhood Diversity!Because it is an island, Galveston offers a choice of orientation, winds and views. Popular neighborhoods for rent to own houses include Point West, Pirate Beach, Sea Isle, Spanish Grant and Jamaica Beach. The median price of a single family home on the island is about $132,500. Prices for in-town condos run about $20,000 higher.
  • Working Waterfront!Galveston's deep-water channel sees a variety of boat traffic. The historic 1877 tall ship Elyssa, anchored in the harbor, is open to visitors, and you can book dolphin-viewing trips or take the ferry to Port Bolivar.
  • Seashore Living Conditions are Fabulous! Galveston Island is a long, narrow barrier island running from northeast to southwest along the Gulf Coast of Texas. Modern rent to own homes range in price from under $100,000 to upwards of $300,000. Taxes are relatively low, and cost of living is extremely reasonable.
  • Real People! Locals take a fierce pride in their island. Residents enjoy their city's reputation as the Queen City of the Gulf, and they're equally proud that one of the first islanders was Jean Lafitte, the pirate! Residents are active in volunteer organizations, including the East End Historic District Association, which works to preserve and protect a 50-block historic portion of the city.
