The sandy beach on Pointe West is just a short walk from the Serenity house and Galveston bay can be seen from the backside of the house. You will enjoy peek-a-boo views of the ocean from the front balcony, and views of the bay and the pond on the balconies out back. You can see water views everywhere! The peaceful covered decks and the patio below the house are great for enjoying the sunsets and spending time with family and friends.
There are plenty of activities provided on Galveston Island. Galveston Island is welcoming you to come and rediscover all it has to offer.
Galveston’s Moody Gardens provides three pyramids worth of zoo, amusement park and museum. If spending time on the sandy beaches is not enough, Schlitterbahn waterpark will entertain you and the kids for hours of fun in the sun. There are plenty of museums like Moody Mansion and Museum and Bishops’ Palace for the historical side of you. Galveston has several ghost tours available which walk you through the historic and haunted mansion district starting at the famous Broadway mansion, Ashton Villa! The outdoor walking tour of the Silk Stocking District takes you through fabulous Queen Anne homes.
There is plenty of shopping on the Strand and at the local souvenir shops. There are candy shops and ice cream shops that have everything from pulled taffy to pecan pralines (my favorite). Galveston Island is host to many festivals throughout the year like Mardi Gras!, Food and Wine Festival, GHF Homes Tour, Beach Revue, Juneteenth Celebration, Wild Texas Shrimp Festival, Island Oktoberfest, and Lone Star Rally.
