Those in search of adult refreshment will appreciate the view of Galveston from The Rooftop Bar at The Tremont House, as well as the five various vibes to be experienced at Island Famous. Other libation locations include Float on Seawall Boulevard, DTO (Daiquiri Time Out), in downtown, and the nearby The Wine Next Door. Also, we suggest you check out the following:
