Need advice!

Planning on traveling to Galveston March 20 and March 21. Due to proximity to Spring Break..should we plan this trip for another time? We are a couple in our early 60's..traveling without kids..can we get a good picture of what Galveston is like? Or will everything be too crazy with the spring-breakers. Please advise

Most Spring Breakers are there the previous week, as most Texas kids have spring break March 10-18. There will probably be kids from other states the next week too. I would probably advise you to wait a week or two.

Sorry!

Another note......it's not always warm here for spring break. You'll want to check the weather closer to your arrival.

We don't have crazy Spring Break crowds like Padre gets, but because of the larger numbers of people, you'll have longer waits at restaurants, pay more for hotels, etc.

I agree...best to wait a week or two when the weather is a bit warmer and not so many people.
