We’ve visited Galveston three times since Hurricane Ike landed last September. Each time the island’s recovery seems to be progressing in leaps. There’s still much to be done in hard-hit residential areas and historic districts, but beachfront hotels, restaurants, and attractions protected by the famed seawall bounced back in a hurry. It’s business as usual at many of the island's most popular landmarks.
Yes, you can go for a weekend―to salute the historic city’s recovery thus far, or, even better, to lend a hand yourself. Here’s our guide for planning a trip.
