Houston comes alive at night, with dives, cocktail bars, and nightclubs dotting the city. In our Houston Nightlife: Best Bars, we’ll cover the best night owl watering holes in each neighborhood.

Just about an hour from Houston, Galveston Island harbors 32 miles of beaches, so you most definitely can (and should) dip your toes in the sand. It also plays home to major fun zones like Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark. But that’s not all there is to do on this Gulf Coast oasis, you’ll also find plenty of awesome watering holes and nightlife.
