Galveston Island, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
The Real Estate Marketing Insider today announced its choice for the Best Beach Rental Market of the Week as Galveston Island. In 2008, Hurricane Ike swept through Galveston Island, Texas, causing the most damage the island community had seen since the Great Storm of 1900. But now, over four years later, Galveston has once again become a thriving tourist destination thanks to millions in local investments, according to a news report in The StarPhoenix.
A record number of tourists visited Galveston in the summer of 2012, and the island has been recognized as one of the Top 10 Family Vacations of 2013 by Family Vacation Critic and one of the Top 5 Best Gulf Coast Beaches by Travel Channel. Tourists in Galveston appreciate the natural beauty of the island, but are also drawn to the sheer number of activities they can try during their stay. According to The StarPhoenix, more than $100 million has been invested on the island to develop new and improved tourist attractions since 2011. Some highlights include the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier amusement park, Moody Gardens, and the Lone-Star Flight Museum where visitors can view Second World War aircraft.
REMI believes that when deciding where to purchase a vacation rental home, it’s important to look for a prime tourist destination with many attractions. Located only 50 miles away from Houston, Galveston is a historic beach town best known for its 32 miles of beaches, a large concentration of well-preserved Victorian architecture, and an exceptional variety of local attractions.
When considering investing in beach front vacation rentals, it’s a good idea to take into account any seasonal variation that might affect tourism. Luckily, in Galveston, events and festivals fill the calendar all year long. Just like many popular summer destinations, a lull in season will typically occur after Labor Day, but the local economy remains in full swing, just with slightly smaller crowds. For these reasons and more, the Insider believes that Galveston, TX, is among the best real estate markets in the U.S. for beach rentals.
The Real Estate Marketing Insider names Galveston Island, TX, is as the Best Beach Rental Market of the Week. Galveston Island has been revitalized by millions of dollars in investments since the damage from Hurricane Ike in 2008, and has since become a popular tourist vacation destination due to its high quality attractions, miles of beaches, and busy-year-round event calendar.
