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 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!
Sun, surf…and turkey? Absolutely! Bringing your family together for the holiday can be stressful, but when you make it a destination holiday you can take a lot of the worry – will Aunt Susie notice that I didn’t dust the baseboards? – out of the equation. This holiday season, spend your time making memories for a lifetime. Leave the cleaning, prepping, and maybe even the turkey roasting to the experts! Read on to discover why your family should spend Thanksgiving in Galveston.
Enjoy Thanksgiving on Galveston beaches! Several favorite local restaurants offer special Thanksgiving menus, with dine-in and take-and-bake options to meet everyone’s needs this year.
Thanksgiving is full of family, friends and – of course! – food! While we all love the fruits of our kitchen labor – it can definitely get a little overwhelming! Thankfully (see what we did there?) there are a number of fabulous local food options for your Sand `N Sea Thanksgiving holiday on Galveston Island!
If you’re anything like us, by now you’re on your 6th iteration of “The Holiday Menu” – complete with vegan options, too-many-pies-to-count, and a growing confusion about how “gluten free”stuffing could possibly be a thing.
Let’s be honest, everyone loves free stuff, right? Free music, free food, free movies (surely we aren’t the only ones that think theater prices are just a little outrageous – whew!)…anyway, if it’s free you can pretty much assume we’re going to at least try it!
Thankfully, our little gem of an island is jam-packed with awesome FREE events all summer long!
Summer vacation is almost over ? but warmer temperatures aren’t going anywhere, apparently!
We want to help you cool off (and sneak in one more weekend on the sand before school starts!) and we’ve got a hot deal to help make it happen! Take advantage of Mid Season rates AND enjoy a FREE* night at a beach house with a minimum two-night stay from August 15 – 29, 2016.
What could be better than extra time at the beach we ask you?! Not much! Well, unless it were extra time at the beach with a frozen lemonade & our favorite paperback, or time at the beach surf fishing while a pod of dolphins chased only the largest fish to our hook, or…well, you get the idea! The beach has it!
Can’t escape for a full week at the beach this summer? We’ve got the answer… ::drum roll:: … a Shorter Summer Stay! We just released a great selection of vacation homes for stays as short as 3 nights in June. (If you’re part of our mailing list then you found out this awesome news yesterday – ahem!).
Are we right?!? As “Snowmageddon” is getting ready to turn the East Coast into a big pile of snow, we can’t help but rejoice as we grab our pullover, 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 home!
