Hello to everyone ! We are 6 students and we are looking fast for a house to rent for the whole summer from 15th june until 2 october. This is urgent ! Please help us !
Some friends and I would like an easy place to go this Summer where we could rent a condo or small place near the beach and just kick back for a few days with the kids. Galveston is obviously quite popular and the prices I've found are relatively high. Are there any quaint, more lesser known locations near Galveston that would be a good option?

We will be in Galveston at the end if July-first of August and my son, who is 15 years old, wants to go deep sea fishing. I know it will be cost some but don't know where to even start.

Our airlines just changed our flights out of HOU upon returning from our cruise next month. We now don't leave HOU until 7:00 PM, which leaves us with a lot of time to kill after being kicked off the ship.
We will have a couple of days pre-cruise to explore some of Galveston mostly on the Strand side where we have a hotel.
I was wondering if there is some stuff to do on the port side we could walk or taxi to or should we rent a car and go to Houston for something to do? Any suggestions welcomed.

We are booked to cruise on the 2nd june 2011 and cannot find travel from George Bush airport to Galveston Island,where we plan to stay for three days before cruising. This has already put me off Galveston before we even get there. We will be staying on 63rd street,three miles from port of Galveston. I cannot believe hire car companies are either closed on sat,sun or fully booked in such a large country. Shuttle service does not seem to pick up at the time our flight gets in,8.45pm. Help !!!!! Please.....
We will be arriving at Bush airport later in the day and want to go to Galveston for the next day so we are looking for ideas on a nice area we can stop on the way to Galveston and have dinner and stay in a hotel overnight.We have never been to Houston and are concerned about looking for places in the dark- we are not going to get to Galveston before dark and are concerned about crime.
Please give us the best and safest route to take and where to go- also, ideas for where to stay in Galveston- we're on a long weekend trip in April.
