Galveston, Texas, or Galvatraz, is a tiny island at the end of Interstate 45 off the Texas coast. This tiny little island may be attached to the Americas. However, locals have long thought of this place as its own country! Over the decades, the island has had many exciting nicknames: Isle of Doom, Campeche, The Queen City of the Gulf, Ellis Island of the South, Free State of Galveston, Sin City, and Galvatraz! We can only presume Galvatraz was destiny with the island's first noted visitor, a shipwrecked Spanish explorer named Cabeza de Vaca, in 1528.
