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.<p>

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.<p>

Moody Gardens

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.
