During Moody Gardens’ Festival of Lights, the area around the outdoor skating rink blooms with more than one million tiny bulbs. As 100 sound-equipped light installations flash and flicker, live entertainment provides a holiday soundtrack. For an additional fee, 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 Home for the Holidays Gift Market gathers more than 100 craft and home-decor vendors on Friday, November 23, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, November 24, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. In the Gift Market VIP lounge, guests overlook the showroom floor while sampling specialty holiday hors d’oeuvres, featured beverages, wines, and hot wassail.
Perched on picturesque Galveston Island, Moody Gardens possesses a storied history that complements its scenic surroundings. More than two million visitors a year get to live part of that history, drawn by the 242-acre park's three towering pyramids. After exploring walking and bike trails lined with nearly 20,000 plants and trees, guests can take their expedition underwater at the Aquarium Pyramid. There, a host of aquatic animals including penguins, sharks, and tropical fish swim and frolic in their natural habitats. Nature is also on display at the Rainforest Pyramid, which takes guests on a quest through the rainforests of Asia, Africa and the Americas.
In addition to embracing the wonders of nature, Moody Gardens also incorporates adventures in mankind's world of science. Guests can broaden their minds with traveling exhibits at the Discovery Museum, or immerse themselves in the towering worlds of the MG 3D Theater or 4D Special FX Theater. The tourist destination also thrills families with water attractions, including a wave pool and a lazy river. No matter the reason for the visit, guests can also rest their heads at the recently-renovated (and nearby) Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center.
