Picture-Perfect Holiday Proposals

With the holiday magic still lingering in the air, it sets the tone for a romantic proposal. Around Galveston, you can experience dreamy backdrops, like at the historic Galveston Seawall. Locals and travelers gather along the 10-mile stretch to enjoy beautiful resorts, some of the best beaches, and of course delicious eats. Stay by the sea and head to Pleasure Pier, where you can experience the exciting 5D theater ride, and then pop the big question on the ferris wheel overlooking the water. If you are looking for a calmer setting, take them on a refreshing walk through the greens at Moody Gardens where you can get down on one knee in front of what is in bloom. You can also never go wrong with waiting until sunset to capture the views from The Tremont House Rooftop Bar, celebrating with drinks and a bird’s eye view. Speaking of, if you are looking to stay downtown with amazing romantic specials to celebrate, The Tremont House offers a “Marry Me” Engagement Package including a suite, roses, champagne, and chocolate-covered strawberries. 

You can find great deals for accommodations throughout town to help celebrate your engagement.  Harbor House Hotel and Marina at Pier 21 offers breathtaking views for all of those memorable snapshots. Congratulations on your happily ever after!
