What to do in July??

Hi,

I know it's hot in July but my 21 year old twins want to go on the beach. What else is there to do?

Hi there!

Galveston is a great place with a ton of things to do besides visit the beach!

You can visit the new water park, Schlitterbahn - it's very large with a lot of rides and has just been expanded:

There's also Moody Gardens - they've got a very cool Rainforest pyramid, a man-made beach, a great IMAX theater, and a neat aquarium, among other things:

You can visit the historic Strand area:

There are also plenty of great restaurants, museums, and places to shop. You'll have a great time!

For more info, check out Galveston's website:

Take the ferry, it's free and so neat. We saw huge ships and dolphins up so close. Also if your twins are guys they might really enjoy the oil rig museum. The air craft museum will be hot. NASA is also a neat place to visit and some place cool. Afterwards we went to Kemah Boardwalk and it is really set up for little kids, so i would skip that.

Thank You, for your responses. My husband didn't want to go because it will be to hot but the boys & I want to go. Plus summer is the only time I can take off of work.

God Bless
