Emily Monaco submitted her piece on Galveston Island. I published it to my texastravelandleisure.com website. It discusses many island businesses such as:

  • Pier 21 Cinema – 2100 Harborside Drive
  • Robert’s Lafitte – 2501 Avenue Q
  • Stewart Beach – 201 Seawall Boulevard
  • 3rd Coast Downtown – 2416 Postoffice Street
  • Tremont House – 2300 Ships Mechanic Row
  • Stars Beach Club – 3102 Seawall Boulevard
  • Hotel Galvez and Spa – 2024 Seawall Boulevard
  • Avenue O Bed and Breakfast – 2323 Avenue O
  • Lost Bayou Guesthouse – 1607 Avenue L
  • Bishop’s Palace – 1402 Broadway
  • The Elissa and the Texas Seaport Museum – Pier 21, Number 8
  • Moody Mansion and Gardens – 2618 Broadway
  • The Mosquito Café – 628 14th Street
  • Saltwater Grill – 2017 Postoffice Street
  • Queen’s BBQ – 3428 Avenue South
  • Leon’s BBQ – 5427 Broadway
  • Pleasure Pier (opening in May) – 25th and Seawall
It presents a wonderful history of this island (the Akokisa and Karanawa Indians, the original islanders). This places the article in perspective. She quotes an islander at length as he discusses his adopted home.
This is definitely a gay-friendly piece. Don’t miss the art-walk on the 3rd Coast. Read the article for details!
