When you are visiting Houston, you can only put up with your kids nagging you to go to the Gulf for so long. It doesn’t matter how much culture or knowledge you pack in those little brains it seems that all they want is to hit the beach!
We were only in Galveston for a day, and a large part of that was spent outside of the city limits on the western part of the island at Galveston Island State Park.
Let me tell you, a day does not even begin to do this city justice!
We need to come back when we can spend a week finding everything charming and quirky about this coastal city. It is still rebounding after Hurricane Ike and very much is a city of contrast. From the hard working oil rigs off shore to the funky Strand Historical District, Galveston can surprise you at every turn!
But if you only have a day like we did, there are still tons of things you can do with your family.
