Family Fun in Galveston
Whether you choose to spend your time building sandcastles at Stewart Beach, pondering penguins at Moody Gardens, or splashing in the pool at the Hotel Galvez, Galveston is the kind of place that encourages lingering. A splendid little beach town located just an hour's drive from Houston, Galveston has plenty of family-friendly options for a weekend getaway. While Galveston has its share of natural disasters (Hurricane Ike in 2008), it always seems to rebuild better than ever. So block out a weekend, pack some sunscreen, and hit the road: your kids will thank you. – by Kristin Finan
