Spring Break in Galveston, TX

Tuesday, 27 Feb, 2024 0

Spring break is right around the corner which means a flood of Texans and out of state travelers will be heading to the beach.

Galveston’s beach parks will open March 9, and that’s just the beginning of what visitors can experience on the island this spring.

 

Galveston Beach Park

While Seawall beaches are open year-round, several of the island’s public beach parks – Stewart BeachEast Beach and Dellanera R.V. Park — will open for beachgoers March 9 for the 2024 beach season, offering a variety of amenities. There are restrooms, showers, beach chair rentals and other concessions. Be sure to check out the new mobile amenities at Stewart beach featuring ADA accessible decking, trailers, restrooms, showers and shade located closer to the beachfront. In addition, beach wheelchairs are available at Stewart and East Beach.

 

Drone Show

The skies over downtown Galveston will light up with hundreds of drones on March 10. Visitors to the island can take their places on The Strand in front of the Galveston Railroad Museum at 25th Street. The drones will begin flying at dusk and will dazzle with 3D scenes, animations and lifelike motions in the sky.

 

Sandcastle lessons at East Beach

Budding architects can learn how to build sandcastles from the pros during free sandcastle lessons taking place March 9 and 16 at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at East Beach and every Saturday thereafter from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekends. Some supplies are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring beach buckets and shovels.

 

Galveston attractions open daily

Many of Galveston’s popular attractions will be open daily during spring break. The Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier amusement park will be open every day March 8-17. The island’s many historic mansions and museums such as Bishop’s Palace and the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum will also be open throughout the season.

 

Washed Ashore Sculptures on display

Spring Break brings an opportunity to view five Washed Ashore sculptures made entirely from marine debris. Most are more than six feet tall and include depictions of coral reefs, jellyfish, penguins, sharks and more. They will remain in Galveston until March 30. The sculptures are located throughout the island: Rosa the Bald Eagle at Pier 21, Gretta the Great White Shark at Saengerfest Park, Stanley the Sturgeon at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, and Brody the penguin at the Children’s Museu. The Washed Ashore sculptures serve conspicuous reminders about the hazards of single-use plastics on marine life.

 

Moody Gardens spring break camps and guided tours

At Moody Gardens, visitors can explore the Aquarium, Rainforest and Discovery Pyramids and much more. Pyramid Kids Camps for children grades K-8 will take place from March 11-15. They feature a mix of activities, animal presentations, games, crafts and more. Junior golfers can hit the links during a camp set for March 12-14. Adults can share in the fun, too. The Spring Adventures program includes early entry into themed attractions in the rainforest and aquarium pyramids starting with a guided tour and followed by an animal presentation. www.moodygardens.org .

 

Galveston’s Downtown Cultural Arts District

The Galveston Downtown Cultural Arts District offers an intriguing selection of theaters, shops, restaurants, and museums. The Victorian architecture of Strand Street, widely known as The Strand, makes for a charming stroll to shop or grab a sweet bite at La King’s Confectionery. Saengerfest Park is a free family park home to a life-size chessboard and regular live entertainment. Be sure to also check out the district’s 20-plus art galleries in beautifully restored historic buildings — many can be found on Post Office Street.
