My DH has business to do in Alvin, and I'm always trying to find a way to have a "free"vacation. I'm looking at the map, and Alvin looks like it's sort of all by itself. Galveston doesn't seem very far, but I don't know what the situation is on Hwy 6 (?) if it's under construction or if there are any issues going on there. We are driving in from San Antonio. From the looks of it, he/we would be staying in Alvin and driving to other places for entertainment. Any suggestions or information will be greatly appreciated!
