Things to do

Dive into the Moody Gardens aquarium

For fun in the sun, make a beeline for Moody Gardens, an educational amusement park anchored by a "deep sea" aquarium. Inside you'll find penguins, seals, stingrays, sharks, and more. Meanwhile, just down the coast is Galveston Island State Park, with sheltered bays on the west side and windswept beaches to the east. As well as scenic hiking trails, the park is laced with a fantastic network of paddling routes. After a day of sightseeing, there's nothing better than retreating to one of the luxury Tiki Island vacation rentals. With lush gardens, sparkling pools, and placid decks, you'll enjoy a slice of the tropics in the heart of Texas.


Slip into Tiki Island time

A quick jaunt across the Interstate 45 will get you to Galveston, Houston's go-to summer playground. Famous for its historic mansions, Galveston offers a fascinating glimpse at Texas in its glamorous heyday. You can also head down to the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, an old-fashioned amusement park where you'll find ice cream parlors, hot dog stands, and plenty of retro rides.


Catch Galveston Island's annual bird migration

Texan summers can get hot and sticky, which means the best times to visit are spring and fall. The weather is glorious, with clear skies, balmy evenings, and a cool sea breeze. While temperatures can dip in winter, there's still plenty of sunshine to enjoy. If bird watching is on your itinerary, the best times to visit are spring and fall, when migrating birds descend on Galveston Island State Park. Running for many years now, April's annual Feather Fest birding and nature festival is a great opportunity to connect with fellow bird lovers.
