Galveston's only Tour Guide featured
on the Smithsonian Channel!
Welcome to the island's most entertaining, informative and personal look at Galveston Island's incredible history.
Host George Douglas Lee, BOI (born on the island) is an expert on the history, culture and romance of Texas' Gulf Coast treasure.
You'll feel like you were there when Galveston was named the "isle of misfortune" after its discovery by a lost Spanish explorer named "cow head". Famous as a city of firsts, scene of the most deadly natural disaster in US history, Galveston is famous for eccentric characters and a loony past.
Discover a parallel universe of comical twists as Lee takes you on a tour, where the founders and heroes were con men, swindlers, crooks, nutcases and dreamers. You'll travel through time, from the beaches to the centuries-old mansions; to Victorian era downtown "Wall Street of the South". You will see the beautiful architecture, port, historic churches, cemeteries and what remains of the wide-open "free state of Galveston".
