The biggest part of the historic Strand District was renovated after hurricane Ike entered the city's history as the third costliest storm in America. On September 13, 2008 it damaged 75 percent of the island. Even though the city recovered from the dead loss of $700 million, the Railroad Museum is still undergoing repair.
However, the hurricane played a vital role in the revitalization of the beaches making them better, with more tourists attracted to the sunny coast today. Modernization brought new business with the largest life insurance companies of America headquartered in Galveston. However, the lion's share of income still comes from tourism to the city.
Thus, public interest transformed Galveston into a profitable metropolis with service-based industries and an abundance of hotels to stay in in the city. Booked.net can place you there with all comforts at a very affordable price.
