Perhaps the most popular happening along this coastal retreat is the annual Historic Homes Tour, a preservation-centered fund-raiser now in its 37th year, benefitting the Galveston Historical Foundation. Held over two consecutive weekends in May, the trek peers into nine privately owned mansions and cottages ranging in age from 87 to 140 years old. May 7 and 8, May 14 and 15, 10 am to 6 pm; tickets $20 in advance, $25 during tour weekends; galvestonhistory.org.
