Why Galveston in September?

Galveston is a year-round destination, but September brings its own charm. The weather is still warm, the crowds are smaller compared to the summer months, and there's a sense of tranquility that pervades the island. It's a fantastic time to soak in the sun, enjoy outdoor activities, and explore Galveston's unique attractions.

Activities for Couples and Small Families

  1. Beach Time: Galveston boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Texas. Spend your days building sandcastles, sunbathing, or taking long walks along the shoreline. Stewart Beach and East Beach are great options for families, while couples might prefer the quieter beaches on the West End.

  2. Historical Exploration: Take a trip back in time by visiting the historic Strand District. Explore charming shops, enjoy delicious seafood at local restaurants, and immerse yourself in the island's rich history.

  3. Moody Gardens: This is a must-visit for families & singles alike. The pyramids house a rainforest, an aquarium, and a discovery center, offering interactive and educational experiences for all ages. It's a fascinating adventure into the world of nature. If you live within 1.5 hrs it's worth getting a season pass (our family has one and we more than get our money out of it year around).
