Planning a Family Galveston Vacation During Fall
With the school year well underway, it often seems that fall break couldn’t come at a better time. The more difficult part of fall break for parents can inevitably be the planning. This year, instead of wondering how to keep young minds engaged while school isn’t in session, consider planning a family-fun Galveston vacation.
This Gulf Coast island city has long been looked to in the name of fun for all ages as it comes with not only a beautiful coastline but exciting stops that include everything from water and amusement parks to opportunities for outdoor adventure. Whether you’re traveling with big kids or little ones, Galveston is an ideal place to set your sights in the name of fall break in 2019.
Galveston Island State Park
If you’re a family that loves to camp, hike and explore together, there’s no better place to plan on visiting while you’re in this incredible city than Galveston Island State Park. Located on the western coast of Galveston, this state park is a sprawling landmass of over 2,000 acres that’s filled with beauty and intrigue. A stop here gives guests the opportunity to set up a tent and stay for a while communing with the great outdoors, or just spend a day exploring the many trails, swimming spots and great options for bird watching.
Texas Seaport Museum
The history of Galveston tends to revolve around the water and a visit to the Texas Seaport Museum is an exciting way to bring that story to life for visitors of all ages. If your family is drawn to the sea, be sure to stop at this establishment located at 2200 Harborside Drive. Not only will the entire family enjoy an engaging look back at how Galveston thrives within a culture of maritime strength and strategy, but there’s an opportunity to visit a Barque known as Elissa that’s hard to miss with her three masts rising high into the harbor sky. This museum ship is a historic landmark and a memorable way to end a sea-based day in Galveston.
Sometimes the best way to spend a vacation is to immerse yourself in pure kid-like fun. Moody Gardens is the ultimate stop for those that can’t get enough of amusement parks and plan on spending the day hopping between rides, aquarium displays, and zip lines. Moody Gardens is one of the most iconic stops in Galveston with good reason. Covering 240 acres of land, this center of family-fun is both educational and exciting, making it the perfect mix for a fall getaway to Galveston with the kids. Moody Gardens is conveniently located at 1 Hope Boulevard and is open from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm daily.
