Shopping & Movies

What vacation would be complete without souvenir and gift shopping? Visitors often times want to purchase souvenirs as keepsakes for themselves or gifts for the less fortunate who weren’t able to make this year’s vacation to the Galvestonian.

Tanger Outlet Mall Shopping

There are plenty of bargains to be found when you visit the Tanger Outlet Mall Texas City. Plan to spend some time here as there are so many great stores to shop. It’s worth the time to visit their website to get a game plan in place with their coupons and sale offers. We might suggest the shoppers in your group plan their outing while others are out fishing or enjoying other local activities. True shoppers know it’s not as fun or productive when non-shoppers are along!

Unique Local Shopping

Visitors looking for a truly unique shopping experience in what was once a building originally built directly on the sand in 1800 with a stormy history ever since should not miss a trip to the Murdoch’s Bathhouse. Not only can you gain a history and weather-related lesson on this local landmark, but you’ll also find souvenirs, shells and trinkets to commemorate your trip. This shopping trip is likely to be enjoyed by shoppers and non-shoppers alike!

Enjoy Great Movies

While there is never a shortage of things to do in Galveston, TX, sometimes you just feel like a movie. If you’re an avid movie-goer or you’re visiting when the next blockbuster movie is set to open, you won’t have to miss any movie viewing knowing that there is a local Movie Theater for your entertainment. Grandparents especially enjoy having the movie theater as an option when spending time with the grandkids.

Dear Galvestonian Guests,

Recently The Galvestonian encountered a corruption in our reservations backup system. The issue has been resolved and we are now resetting the reservations database.

If you or someone you may know made a reservation for 2018, please contact us by email to reconfirm your reservation. Please send emails to or contact us by phone at 409-765-6161.

Please note that this issue was not a result of illegal intrusion, hacking or in any way a compromise of any data. It was a system configuration error and a resulting damage to our back-up storage which caused us to reset our reservation systems. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your help while we validate our system.

Kindest regards,
Sergio F. Ortiz
General Manager
