What Renters Like and Dislike About Galveston

I like there is a corner store, that is family owned and operated. Very kind people and they sale almost everything. They even have a meat market.

Only one block from the beach. Gated covered parking. Near historic neighborhood and tourist attractions.

I think the unique thing is that they have shops and design of employees get bettet attention and minimun sk

Our favorite restaurants serving a variety of foods are within walking distance which we enjoy with friends. We are on the beach with a nice view.
