Galveston

If you haven't been to Galveston lately, now is the perfect time to experience some of the island's unique attractions. Galveston is a small romantic island tucked deep within the heart of south Texas possessing all the charm of a small southern town and just 40 minutes south of the fourth largest city in the United States. From soft sandy beaches to famous 19th century architecture, the island is surrounded with incredible history and unique beauty.

Galveston offers 32 miles of relaxing beaches, superb restaurants, top resort hotels, marvelous downtown shopping, numerous antique stores, incredible art galleries, fabulous entertainment and one of the largest and well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country.

Focused on waterfront fun and entertainment like no other Gulf Coast destination, the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier features family-oriented attractions including rides, games of chance and skill, a wide selection of food venues and retail shops.

The Pleasure Pier rides vary from thrilling to gentle, allowing guests of all ages to relish in the boardwalk excitement. Channeling excitement at every twist, turn and heart-pounding drop, the 16 rides offer unparalleled thrills. Situated over the Gulf of Mexico, many rides create the exciting sensation of being suspended above the water.

Speaking of waves, Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark features more than 32 state-of-the-art attractions including the Shipwreck Harbor wave lagoon, which includes a 100,000-gallon pool of three-foot waves and slides.

Moody Gardens Rainforest Pyramid features a tree-top canopy walkway that will take guests on a birds eye exploration of more than 1,000 species of exotic plants and animals. Along the walkway, youll see new exhibits, such as a habitat for endangered giant river otter, and even some free roaming monkeys and tropical birds.

Meanwhile, the Lone Star Flight Museums newest historic aircraft is the North American P-51 Mustang " regarded by many as the most effective fighter aircraft produced during World War II. The plane arrived to the museum last year after a lengthy restoration process. Now, visitors have the chance to see this rare warbird up close and even enjoy a flight in it as part of the museums Warbird Flight Experience Program.

There is so much to explore on Galveston Island and if you haven't seen it all yet, it's island time!
