Galveston Beach

We took one day from Houston to show the boys Galveston beach:

Lots of fun playing, but we stayed in very shallow water this visit as the current was strong.

Since we were headed elsewhere, we didn’t stay in a hotel at the beach (the hotels are generally across the street from Seawall Blvd anyway, so it’s not as though you can walk through a lobby and step onto the sand — you still have to cross the street); there was a lot of public parking available and to use the space, you just use the Pay by Phone app which is super easy.

The new “Babe’s Beach” in Galveston opened this week and is named in honor of A.R. “Babe” Schwartz, a state senator who fought for the Open Beaches Act, guaranteeing free public access to Texas beaches on the Gulf.
