Let’s Ride the Ducks in Galveston…
If you have been with this blog for awhile…you will know how much I LOVE to RIDE THE DUCKS in every city I visit!
We traveled 15 miles on Galveston Island…oh so fun.
They traveled down Seawall Blvd pointing out many exciting attractions. We went on a water tour. That’s right, it really goes in the water!
We toured Offatt’s Bayou for approximately 15 minutes. Once we hit land again, they showed some of the beautiful 1900’s mansions and the historic downtown Strand shopping district. We saw some of the best shopping, dining and downtown attractions.
On our journey back to the Seawall, we passed through the “Silk Stockings” historical homes district, reputation as the home of Galveston’s prosperous families.
Tucked between Broadway and Seawall Boulevard, the SSNHD boasts a varied collection of historic homes that reflect development from the Civil War through World War II. Outlined by Galveston’s other historic boulevard, Rosenberg (25th Street), SSNHD is roughly composed of fourteen blocks. SSNHD presents some of the best and affordable historic living Galveston has to offer with palm and oak lined streets, a trolley line, and a varied collection of stately manors, Victorian homesteads, and charming cottages. SSNHD reflects a diverse, welcoming community dedicated to preserving, revitalizing and protecting SSNHD’s historic and community character.
