Your Ultimate Spring Break Destination

Those in search of adult refreshment will appreciate the various vibes to be experienced at Island Famous, a beachfront set of five distinct venues all in one location. Other libation locations include poolside Float on Seawall Boulevard and DTO (Daiquiri Time Out) in downtown, with a happy hour that lasts all day on every Monday!

Family’s love the educational entertainment at Moody Gardens featuring famous pyramids (Discovery, Rainforest, and Aquarium), a five-tier steel ropes course, and a 60-foot-high zip line that make this ever-popular destination top the list for all ages. Or partake in some old-fashioned boardwalk fun at Pleasure Pier that offers a special Spring Break Pass for unlimited rides at the Kemah Boardwalk, Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, and Downtown Aquarium.

For a bit of historic charm combined with sophistication mere steps from the Gulf, make your reservation at Hotel Galvez & Spa. Or check into the Harbor House Hotel & Marina at Pier 21, for a lovely scenic view of the harbor.
