Southern Living Magazine has just named Galveston Island to its 2017 list of The South's Best Islands.
The water, fresh seafood and abundance of historical architecture made Galveston a draw for the magazine's readers.
The publication polled its audience to find out their favorite coastal escapes. It's the only Texas city to appear on the list.
Southern Living also chose these cities as top island destinations:
- North Carolina's Outer Banks
- St. Simons, Georgia
- The Florida Keys
- Hilton Head, South Carolina
- Chincoteague, Virginia
- Kiawah, South Carolina
- Jekyll, Georgia
- Sanibel, Florida
- Tybee, Georgia
