Hi! We’re the Gossetts; B, Christy, Kylee, and Zach. Growing Up Galveston is our passion project. We love our island; the good, the bad, and the ugly. We were drawn to Galveston in 2009 for so many reasons and we decided to make this our forever home.
Is it perfect? Heck no! Is it fabulous? Of course it is as long as you know where to go, what to do, and what not to do!
Our #1 goal is to share the real story of Galveston with our readers. We want you to enjoy our island as much as we do. We’re not here to shoot you sunshine, lollipops, and unicorn farts. We’re here to to share the real-deal Galveston scene.
There are overpriced restaurants with poor service and food, and there are some super ones with great service. There are hotels that don’t live up to their name, while there are others that are unsung. There are times of the year that our island is less than stellar (hello, red tide) and stinky. We want you to know the real Galveston. Not the Galveston that the “big” sites paint for you.
Growing Up Galveston was founded with some profound meanings. You see, our babies are growing up in Galveston and they’ve known no other life. B and I are finally growing up…after many years of trying…in Galveston. And our little island, that’s been slammed with hurricane after hurricane over the years, is always growing up. Together, we’re growing up Galveston.
We’re glad to have you along on this journey and we’re so excited to share our lives, experiences, and love of this little slab of the world with you!
