The main purpose of this thread is to thank SSB, Galveston Cruiser, and any others who offer helpful info about Galveston on CC. We stayed one night pre-cruise at the Hotel Galvez and found Galveston to be a charming place.
For dinner we chose Millers, mainly because it was easy walking distance from our hotel. Good food, good service, reasonable prices with a Gulf view. We had breakfast at the Galvez. At first I thought it was overpriced ($15 for a buffet), but the buffet was quite nice, made-to-order omelets, everything else a breakfast buffet could offer, coffee & juice included. Plus, kids were free, so for us and our 4 yr old DGD it worked out about the same as eating somewhere else.
It was a bit cool and breezy, so that was pretty much the extent of what we saw except for a short walk from the hotel in each direction. Galvez does offer a free shuttle but we didn't use it.
Anyways, thanks again to those who helped provide info on here. It's one of the reasons I love CC.
