This island city of nearly 60,000 has it all – sun, sea and beaches galore with 32 miles of soft, silky sand and warm ocean currents. Join Bump! on this festive trip as we climb aboard a colourful, sparkling float and revel in Galveston’s Mardi Gras celebrations, the biggest event of the year! Take a walk back in time as we tour historic real estate that dates back to the early 1800’s as well as some gay-owned properties to see how people live luxuriously in the southernmost tip of Texas. Gay chef Chuck Terry of the historic Tremont House Hotel whips up a mouth-watering seafood feast. Experience hospitality Texas-style at a couple of gay owned hotels and guesthouses and stroll down the beach to Galveston’s annual Sand Castle competition that happens every June. If you still have energy left when the sun goes down come along with Bump! as we down a few “bevvys” at the watering holes and hotspots the locals favor.
