OMG! We LOVE Galveston! We had the best time on the beach and the hotel we stayed at was the best. The Hotel Galvez was built in 1911 and just celebrated its 100th birthday. What a wonderful place. Our shower was the best shower I have ever been in! It took us about 4 hours to get to Galveston once we left San Antonio. We checked in to our room and headed straight to the beach. The water was like bath water and we spent the next 4 hours on the beack swimming and sun bathing. Now, because it was so hot and muggy, I had to rent chairs and an umbrella so we could get out of the sun, but it was sooooo worth it. I rented the kids boogie boards and they tried their luck at catching a wave. In the distance you could see oil rigs....that was something I couldn't quite get used to. We left the beach and went to the hotel pool. It had a swim up bar and I of course ordered a couple of Coronas while Mason played in the pool. We had the BEST time in Galveston! We will for sure be back. The kids are asking to come back next year and rent a house and stay for a week or so......
