Galveston Pier, Texas

Well, Texas is known to have the biggest and best of everything, so you can’t be surprised to see Texas first on the list.  Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier is an amazement park built on a pier in Galveston, Texas in the United States.  This is waterfront fun and entertainment like no other.

What is the difference?

“Although the two terms are often used as synonyms, there is a distinct difference between jetty and pier. The key difference between a jetty and a pier is that a jetty protects the coastline from the current and tides whereas a pier does not disturb the current or tide due to its open structure.” –

We’re no experts on the difference, so forgive us if we use “pier” instead of “jetty” or the other way around. 🙂
