Galveston, Texas: Exotic Animals, Water Parks, and Victorian Mansions on the Gulf of Mexico
Galveston occupies a barrier island roughly a half-hour drive from Houston. Its gulf beaches are bathed in sunlight more than 200 days of the year. Though Galveston’s climate is almost tropical, penguins waddle into chilly waters at the city’s most famous attraction, Moody Gardens. Nearby, saki monkeys roam a rainforest habitat, stingrays glide through a 1.5-million-gallon aquarium, and snow falls on moviegoers’ noses in a 4D theater. Another popular attraction is Schlitterbahn Galveston Water Park, where you can zoom down water slides and sidle up to a swim-up bar all year round.
Step back in time with a visit to downtown Galveston’s Strand District. Here, classic cars and horse-drawn carriages roll down streets lined with old-fashioned street lamps and elaborate Victorian mansions. These brick behemoths now house art galleries, antique stores, and shops selling homemade ice cream and handcrafted jewelry.
