As much of the US starts to see snow and icy cold weather, we can’t help but rejoice as we grab our pullovers, throw on our flip flops (because, seriously, they are an all-year wardrobe piece — no matter what our mother says), and be SO happy we get to call this Gulf Coast island of Galveston our home.
Even though it’s not quite sunbathing weather, there is still plenty to do in this island paradise! If you’re looking for a cozy, fun-packed getaway from Houston, Dallas, Austin, or beyond for Christmas or the winter months, here’s why Galveston may just be the spot for you.
There’s a sleigh full of winter wonder-island holiday events to explore when you spend Christmas in Galveston! From festive light displays and performances to unique holiday attractions like ICE Land, Galveston is a magical experience a short drive from Houston that shouldn’t be missed.
Bring your family to the island for a weekend getaway or a full holiday vacation in November or December. Either way, there are events for all ages and West End beach houses that are guaranteed to be the perfect fit!
