Beach Vacation Ideas in Texas #4:

During my last vacation, in Galveston, TX, there were different shops and places to eat, comparing to where I live. I loved going into the shops and seeing all the neat little trinkets, made of shell or other items found in the ocean. The clothing selection was a plus, with an assortment of colors, and they had many different hats.

Also, I enjoyed eating at new places and taking advantage of the different varieties of foods they offered. Another plus was the location of our hotel. We were right near the beach, with an awesome view!

We could see all the fishing and shrimping boats on the horizon, and literally when the sun set it set on the horizon of the water, making it almost the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. - Jennifer from TX
