Place Between Galveston & Corpus Christi on the Shore

We are coming down in August to spend 4-5 days with our teenage grandchildren in early August. They live in Gonzales, Tx. We've looked at the San Antonio Riverwalk which we would enjoy, but they might get bored. We looking for a place on the Texas Gulf between Galveston and Corpus Christi. We would like to spend time relaxing by the shorline, in a hotel with a pool, and a few things to do in the area. We could drive to day time activities and come back in the evening. We are looking for suggestions. Thank you.

I would suggest a condo rental on Mustang Island; review options in Port Aransas. It will be very busy as the locals get in their final days of vacation before kids go back to school so I would book early.

Some of the more popular condos are Sand Castle, Mayan Princess, Port Royal, and the Dunes. There are many others.

Thanks for the post. Is there anything half way between Galveston and Corpus Christi which would be closer to Gonzales? Thank you.

Don't know of any beach destinations between Corpus Christi and Galveston. The coastal area is primarily fishing and boating. Maybe others can help, but the 3 main beach destinations in Texas are Galveston, Corpus Christi, and South Padre Island. Good luck...

Surfside is about 30 miles farther than Port Aransas, from Gonzales. Both will be just over 3 hours travel time. San Antonio to Port Aransas is a little farther but again around three hours.

Check out rockport. I grew up going down there and I love it! Nice beach, good fishing, boat rentals, cute shops, good restaurants. Stay at lighthouse inn and suites.
