Loving February in Galveston

Are we the only ones still slightly shocked that January is already over? Whew!

Thankfully, February is jam-packed with Island fun!

Valentine's Day

Reserving a long weekend in a beach house is a given ;)

Going the traditional route? Local florists Knapp Flower Shop, J.Maisel's, and Downtown Blooms are great options for custom floral arrangements.

Looking for the sweet stuff? La King's Confectionery is a must-stop, followed by local bakeries like PattyCakes, Sunflower Bakery & Cafe or Shykatz.

On the hunt for a funky alternative? Try a private kayak adventure with Artist Boat or a cooking class at Kitchen Chick. Or, take a walk on the wild side and dine at the Rainforest Pyramid at Moody Gardens.
