Toast the New Year in Grand Galveston Style

First, make reservations for accommodations, drinks, and dinner, and choose a hotel near where you plan on spending the evening. If you’d like to stroll the streets of the Historic Strand District and enjoy the last few days of Downtown Lasers & Lights, we suggest the charming luxury of The Tremont House. You can experience delightful dining at the Tremont Café, sample a myriad of martinis at their 1888 Toujouse Bar, or catch the breathtaking view from their Rooftop Bar as you ring in the New Year. Additional restaurants located downtown include Riondo’s Ristorante, the Saltwater Grill, and Rudy and Paco.

For those who prefer a harbor view, along with the many attractions and eateries at nearby Pier 21, we suggest checking in at the Harbor House Hotel and Marina at Pier 21. Make your dinner reservations at Willie G’s Seafood and Steakhouse and afterward, you’ll only be a few steps away from your spacious room with stunning harbor views. If you prefer luxury beachside accommodations, Hotel Galvez & Spa is the place for you. Relax with a variety of spa offerings before indulging yourself with an extravagant dinner and champagne toast at the elegantly-appointed Galvez Bar & Grille, and don’t leave without sampling their renowned Sunday Brunch!
