Pre-cruise activities in Galveston

We are cruising out of Galveston in October. I would like to spend a day in Galveston before we get on the ship. It looks like Moody Gardens is closed, what would be the best thing to do for a few hours and where should we stay the night before?

Bishops Palace and Moody Mansion have tours and are very interesting.

Moody Gardens is open everyday. You may have been looking at their summer hours. But they are open year round.

Any hotel along the seawall, or even the elegant Tremont House on The Strand will be fine. Depends upon your budget, really.

Do you have any suggestions on how to get to Galveston from Houston? We are flying in to Houston-Bush and arrive at 9pm. I'd love to get to Galveston and spend the night. My dream day would be to wake up in Galveston, have a great seafood Sunday Buffet Breakfast, take a walk on a nice beach and walk right on to the cruise ship at the last minute possible. Is this just a dream?
