About
Return to a time when the mob ran Galveston and their guests were treated as if they were family. When you crossed the bridge you enter "The Free State of Galveston," where the only rules were mob rules. The stars of the era were world class entertainers brought in to perform in the casinos, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin. Everyone was enjoying their own "Vegas Dream" right here in Galveston.

Great Galveston Red Light Tour

Rob was so much fun in this historic tour. We learned a lot of history. Looks like we caught some interesting photos too. Cameras were held still and burst shots taken. Highly recommend this tour for adults!!
