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" by a lost Spanish explorer named "cow head". A city of firsts, scene of the most deadly natural disaster in US history, and famous for eccentric characters and a loony past.
Discover a parallel universe of comical twists, where the founders and heroes were con men, swindlers, crooks, nutcases and dreamers. Travel through time, from the beaches to the centuries-old mansions; to Victorian era downtown "Wall Street of the South", and see the diverse, even eccentric and beautiful architecture, port, historic churches, cemeteries and what remains of the wide-open "free state of Galveston".
