Romantic Galveston


A Galvestonian take on Mardi-Gras decoration.

I visit Galveston every chance I get.  Most folks go for the beaches--32 miles of them.  But I'm drawn as much by tangy island air and quirky character, not to mention Victorian architecture and a historic downtown. 

The town holds all the elements of romance, the subject of my recent San Antonio Express-News travel article, "Recipe for a Romantic Galveston Weekend."

From a grand-dame beachside hotel to delicious dining, an appealing arts district and casual entertainment, Galveston's charm succeeds in making us forget our daily lives and focus on each other.

And isn't that the key to romance?
