2. Hotel Galvez

Your first stop is going to be at Hotel Galvez, located across the street from the Seawall. It is one of the most historic hotels in Galveston, and is rumored to be haunted– if only the walls could talk! Built in 1911 for the then extravagant cost of $1 million, the Galvez Hotel has been intertwined in the island’s history for generations. In 1994 it was added to the list of Historic Hotels of America and is still known today as an elegant, vibrant destination for travelers all around the world. Both the hotel and city of Galveston are named after the American Revolutionary War hero, Bernardo de Galvez. Needless to say, history is oozing from the walls of the Hotel Galvez so feel free to walk around the grounds and explore after locking up your Pedego. Once you have finished taking it all it has to offer, it’s time to hop back on your bikes and head to the next destination!

3. The Balinese Room Pier

Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Hotel Galvez is the Balinese Room Pier. The Balinese Room was a famous nightclub that was built on a pier stretching 600-feet from the Seawall over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It opened in 1929 and for decades it featured a dance hall and illegal casino for tourists and residents alike. Many famous faces made their appearance at the Balinese Room, such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, George Burns, and The Marx Brothers. Sadly, in the morning hours of September 13, 2008 the structure was completely destroyed by Hurricane Ike.

4. Galveston Seawall and Grade Raising

Since Galveston is an island off of the Gulf Coast, it has fallen victim to multiple hurricanes and tropical storms over the years. However, it wasn’t until September 8, 1900 when a disastrous hurricane struck, that the need for a seawall was deemed necessary. At this point, it was the greatest natural disaster in U.S. history, taking 6,000 lives and causing $30 million dollars worth of damage. It was then determined that Galveston would need some sort of protection against these unpredictable disasters in the future, causing the seawall to begin construction. It was initially built 17 feet high (at low tide) and three miles long; yet over the years, the seawall has experienced lengthening additions to provide further protection. Additionally, from 1903-1911 the city of Galveston undertook extensive grade raising which not only provided support to the seawall, but also facilitated drainage and sewage systems making it one of the most brilliant feats of civil engineering in the history of the nation. After you witness this incredible structure, get ready for the fun to continue because your next stop is nothing short of a good time!

Get your cameras ready for this stop, because it is picture worthy to say the least! The Turtle Mural at Menard Park is designed to raise awareness about the Flower Gardens Banks National Marine Sanctuary and sea turtles, which was made possible with support of the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. It now stands tall as a public art piece to educate tens of thousands of residents and visitors about sea turtles and the sanctuary. Snap a few photos or selfies in front of the Turtle Mural and share with your friends, as you might create a chain reaction and educate someone else about the efforts to save the sea turtles.

7. Gaido’s Restaurant

Have you already worked up an appetite? No problem! Gaido’s Seafood Restaurant is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat along the Seawall. Not only does Gaido’s serve delicious seafood, but it also offers a rich history as it first opened their doors to the beach-going public in 1911.

It is located in the Hampton Battery area along the Seawall, and offers planters, benches, picnic tables, and special plaques that tell the native story of the Seawall. Fort Crockett Park reaches from 45th to 51st Street, ending at what is known as the Izard Battery. These battery areas, which jut outwards toward the surf, are part of the original military installations at Fort Crockett.

At the far end of the park is Fort Crockett itself, which was originally built in an effort of defense to protect the city, harbor, and bay entrance of Galveston. Fort Crockett was initially in charge of protecting the commercial and industrial ports of both Galveston and Houston, as well as the extensive oil refineries in the bay area. What was once a military facility, is now managed by the US National Marine Fisheries Service, and hosts the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries Laboratory, the Texas Institute of Oceanography, as well as some university facilities. The area still contains several historical buildings and military fortifications.

The San Luis Resort is known for its breathtaking view of the Gulf Coast and sits high atop an embankment containing artillery from the nearby Fort Crockett. In the 1980s, the San Luis Resort was built on and behind the site of the former Battery Hoskins. The massive concrete gun emplacements remain dramatically visible from Seawall Blvd, although one gun emplacement now sports a swimming pool atop it, and the other gun emplacement is adorned with a wedding gazebo.
