As Galveston Island residents, we know that there’s a yin and a yang to tourism on the island. Thanks to the more than 7 million visitors who come here every year, we have great restaurants, world-class museums and attractions right in our backyard. But, there also can be a downside — such as traffic and congestion during certain times of the year.
The park board wants to gain a greater understanding about how Galveston residents feel about the current and future state of tourism on the island. To that end, the organization is distributing a resident sentiment survey in partnership with Vision Galveston.
