Fun Things to do in Galveston Year-Round

Just a little over a half hour from the South Shore Harbour Resort lies the city of Galveston. With a myriad of attractions, Galveston offers even the most discriminating traveler some fabulously fun things to do. Listed here are two of our favorites. First, check out the famous Galveston Tree Sculptures. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade, the folks here have done one impressive job, with the artistically-inclined making incredible works of art from trees damaged by Hurricane Ike.

You can drive through the areas, rent a bike, or walk along, but be aware that most of these are in neighborhood yards, so you may have to look sharp so you don’t miss one. These also make some interesting Instagrammable shots. Next, no matter if it's cold or rainy outside, the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark offers one terrific indoor waterpark experience. An ideal place to take restless kids on dreary days, the waterpark also offers a not-so-lazy river and a hot tub with a bar for the grownups. Also, you can rent a cabana or two for larger families or groups.
