Galveston Island is open for business! While Hurricane Harvey was not so friendly to the Houston area, the storm spared Galveston island and its major tourist attrations, hotels and restaurants. The island completed a beach expansion in May and Moody Gardens unveiled a $37 million renovation of its Aquarium Pyramid. Galveston is gearing up for some great family-friendly festivals including the Galveston Island Wild Shrimp Festival September 29-30, Artoberfest October 22 and Oktoberfest October 28-29. Before you know it, the island will be in full holiday mode celebrating Galveston’s Winter Wonder Island. Galveston’s a quick four-hour drive from Austin and a whole world away!
