Located along the shores of Galveston, TX lies a quiet, little, hidden treasure reminiscent of a Cape Cod getaway called Beachtown. Complete with Victorian-inspired homes, a quaint little cafe, and a beach that stretches for miles that seem at times an oasis all to yourself.

Nestled on the east end of Galveston Island where the porches of the homes are lit up as you walk along the wooden boards of the white covered railings down a long winding path leading straight to one of the best, unobstructed views of the ocean. It’s a complete paradise right along the Gulf Coast with all the comforts of home to want to make this your go-to beach vacation destination, a secret get-away not many tourists know about as we recently found out when asking a few friends from nearby Houston, TX if they heard about this gem.

Every attention to detail has been given in the beauty of the distinct architectural touches that tell a unique story of each home – from its towering rooftops to its charming and inviting porches that wrap around and welcome you through its front doors to a world of breathtaking interior designs. There’s a timeless beauty with the charm of Victorian homes located throughout Galveston, and keeping with its legacy and heritage adored by many. Touches of inspiration, as shared from its website, from towns such as Charleston, the Carolina Low Country, and New Orleans are clearly felt as you stand and admire each unique home.

The surrounding businesses, cafe, and, real estate are in keeping with the tone and creativity of the architecture of the area. You really feel as if you have stepped into another part of the world reminiscent of a cape cod cottage nestled away in its own realm of bliss.
