Galveston Goodies to Make Mom’s Day

First, start the day with a lavish brunch at Hotel Galvez and Spa. Tip: Book your brunch reservations well in advance. The hotel begins taking Mother's Day Brunch reservations Monday, April 22, 2019. Next, stroll around The Strand and take in the vintage vibe while browsing through a variety of shops. Be sure to indulge in the goodies offered by LaKing's Confectionary, Hey Mikey’s Ice Cream, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and more!

Afterward, head over to Pier 21 for an exciting Dolphin Baywatch cruise or a tour of the 1877 Tall Ship ELISSA. As a bonus gift, purchase tickets for a concert or a direct-from-Broadway show at The Grand 1894 Opera House. They have a great summer season.

Lastly, be sure to treat Mom to fabulous accommodations! Enhance your downtown visit by staying at The Tremont House in the Strand. Or check into the Harbor House Hotel & Marina to be mere steps away from all that Pier 21 offers. For lovely beachfront accommodations and a fabulous Sunday brunch, we recommend Hotel Galvez & Spa.
