I had a business meeting in Galveston TX last week. This is a great place for a family vacation. It's on an island approx. 1 hr south of Houston TX. I stayed at Moody Gardens which is a WONDERFUL Hotel!! On the hotel property there is an Aquarium, Imax Theater, Rainforest, Water Park and more. Their web site is http://www.moodygardens.com/ . I took these pictures in the rainforest. They also say the fishing is realy great around here.
I watched a 3D movie IMAX Theater called "Sea Monsters" which was really cool! Great "jump out and get you" effects. I wish I had more time. I would have gone to the 3D Grand Canyon show. They have 5 different shows every day. I also had time to go through the Aquarium and Rainforest. They only took about 20-30 minutes each but they were VERY well managed and I really enjoyed the walk though. Whoever is managing these facilities is doing an excellent job keeping it up. The animals looked healthy and happy. I didn't get to enjoy the other attractions due to time (which means WORK)! But if I would have had my kids with me we would have "done it all" (especially the water park).
The hotel staff were great! Loved the service. Even the bathroom soap was "spa" quality.
