At Moody Gardens’ Festival of Lights, the area around its outdoor skating rink suddenly blooms with the twinkling of more than one million tiny bulbs. As 100 sound-equipped light installations flash and flicker, live entertainment creates its own soundtrack. Meanwhile, guests can take pictures with Santa or wander into one of three theaters to catch holiday films until the Gardens close at 10 p.m.
The Aquarium Pyramid also opens its gates to holiday revelers, enlightening visitors with up-close-and-personal peeks at more than 10,000 marine animals from the Caribbean, North Pacific, South Pacific, and South Atlantic. Around 1.5 million gallons of water fill the aquarium's four exhibits, where guests can identify five species of penguins, gape at sweeping coral reefs, and exchange salutations with Squirt, the blind sea lion. At The Caribbean, the aquarium’s largest exhibit, visitors can lock eyes with sharks and sea turtles and walk through an underwater tunnel occupied by thousands of kaleidoscopic tropical fish.
It's not everywhere that you'll find lush wetlands, glass pyramids, and flying golf balls in the same place. Moody Gardens Golf Course stands out from its typical fairway brethren with its tropical atmosphere and proximity to Moody Gardens' bounty of family attractions. There, golfers play through 18 holes of a course recently renovated by Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design, challenging their clubs to multiple water hazards and the towering might of more than 500 palm trees. Though the greens are carpeted with premium Paspalum turf, native flora is all around, thanks to surrounding Sydnor Bayou and the fact that the course is a popular destination for vacationing bluebonnets.
