Starting at 2 p.m. on Friday, November 28, and at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 29, the Moody Gardens Convention Center transforms into the Home for the Holidays Gift Market, featuring more than 150 area vendors. Shoppers can peruse clothing, handmade jewelry, candles, craft foods, and accessories for one-of-a-kind gift-giving.
Post-shopping, they can head to the Festival of Lights, which runs both days from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. More than 1 million lights illuminate sound-enhanced, animated lights displays, backed by live entertainment. The merriment continues on the outdoor ice skating rink—rentals are available—and Santa, who eagerly poses for pictures with the kiddos.
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.
