Where did you park in Galveston?

Recent Galveston Cruisers,

Where did you park in Galveston?

How was it?

Was it walking distance?

Thank you!

Lighthouse parking. Very reasonable rates, covered + elevated parking. Decently friendly staff. We'll park there again.

As far as walking distance, that depends on your definition. We took the (free) shuttle; probably a bit far for most folks. It was waiting there for us when we disembarked; no call or anything needed.

We plan on parking at EZ cruise parking.They were highly recommended by our TA.They handle your luggage for you and shuttle you to the cruise terminal and back.

We used Lighthouse too. All spaces are covered, we could book online in advance. DH dropped us off at port, then parked, and he walked back to port.. It's doable if you have no kids or luggage. I highly recommend one of these lots instead if the official port parking. There were long, slow lines for those buses both before and after our cruise last week.

We are staying at a hotel the night before and they have a package deal where they will keep the car for the 8 days, take us to the port and pick us back up. Pretty sweet deal!

Galveston Parking

We used boi valet, it was all indoor valet parking. It looks like a converted warehouse but it was across the street from the cruise terminal entrance and I called once we where through customs and car was in driveway and warm when we got off the cruise in December.
