If you haven't been to the island for a few years you are in for a big surprise!  There's a $23 million beach renovation project that is not only restoring but expanding the beaches all along the island.  Just look at the number of restaurants available - it will take you years to try each one.  And don't forget all the options for entertainment such as: The Historic Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens & Schlitterbahn.  Galveston also hosts events all year around.  Here are few we recommend you explore:
