Galveston has been wowing those heading to the Texas coast for almost 200 years, and there’s no great surprise when you consider the island has 32 miles of beachfront to mull over.
One of the best when it comes to facilities as well as atmosphere is Galveston’s Each Beach, which has a pavilion and boardwalk as well as restrooms and children’s playgrounds. The broad expanse of Stewart Beach’s golden sands provides almost limitless space to spread out or play a game of ball, while more secluded spots can be found in several pocket parks that dot the coast too.
Known as ‘the playground of the south’, Galveston attractions include the historic pier, several significant museum collections and Moody Gardens, whose glass pyramids are home to a shark-filled aquarium and a rainforest complete with monkeys.
