Texas Gulf Coast

Specialty Museums · Science Museums · Wildlife Areas
Stretching over 965 km (600 mi) from Louisiana to the Mexican border, the Texas Gulf Coast is the state's main region for outdoor activity and vacation getaways. Dotted with funky seaside villages, expansive national parks, and beautiful golden sand beaches, the Gulf Coast is only an hour's drive from Houston, the state's cultural and commercial hub. For some historical sightseeing, wander through centuries-old downtown Galveston, or head to South Padre Island for a tropical holiday. When using our United States road trip tool, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
