Beaches, Bikes, and Boats on Galveston Island, TX

Spring temperatures average 68–79 degrees, and alcohol is banned from one-third of the 32 miles of beach, making the 10.5-mile seawall and popular Stewart Beach officially “family-friendly.” Families can rent a four-person surrey from Island Bikes. Don’t forget “history” that kids love: La King’s Confectionery, housed in a 150-year-old building, features antique arcade games and candy-makers who pull taffy.

Don’t Miss: Artist Boat’s kayak tour through Galveston Island State Park’s estuaries includes a watercolor landscape-painting lesson for all ages.
