Attractions and Things to Do
Traveling to Galveston this trip? Book your stay at the spa hotels in Galveston. They provide you with luxurious amenities, delicious on-site dining, and close proximity to shopping and recreation. You can count on excellent extras such as an on-site spa and heated outdoor pool with seasonal swim up bar; especially when you stay at the Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center, the Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Hotel, the San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center, and the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort.
Visit the Aquarium Pyramid, on 1 Hope Blvd, and see lots of animals, such as sharks and seahorses, in the 1.5 million gallon aquarium. The Rain Forest Pyramid and the Discovery Pyramid are well worth your time to visit as well. You can also take the family to enjoy the day at the Moody Gardens. This 242-acre amusement park features an aquarium, zip line, and paddlewheel boat. Take a tour of the area on the 1800’s replica paddlewheel boat. See penguins, sharks, sting rays, and more at the aquarium. There is enough recreation to fill your whole day at the Moody Gardens alone, and then you can return to the spa hotels in Galveston at night to relax.
Spa hotels in Galveston place you within walking distance or short driving distance of many recreational attractions.
