Default Galveston question

Can someone tell me how close Alvin Tx is to Galveston? Have room reserved there. Looks fairly close. All the motels are sold out in Galveston. Think because there is a bike rally there that weekend.

Paisleyrose, welcome to Alvin! Guess where I am? I can't even guess the mileage, but it will take about 40 min (max) to get there. Probably closer to 30 minutes. It is a VERY easy drive. Which hotel are you booked? I was trying to figure out why all rooms would be booked in Galveston -- the Lone Star Bike Rally! Oh MY! You should be o.k. on a Sunday morning, though. If you're into bikes, you may want to check it out on Saturday. Any more questions?

We are staying at the Best Value Inn. Well, not all the rooms were sold out yet in Galveston. There was one at the Super 8 for $250 a night!!!! We will be there on Saturday and not looking forward to the crowds but i have something else to look forward to come Sunday. My ship!!! Thanks for the helpful info. Happy cruising.

For $250 bucks I would take a camper & have a tailgate party at the Terminal parking lot...
