Things to Do During Your Beach Vacation in Texas

Things to Do During Your Beach Vacation in Texas

With beaches open year-round, Texas beach vacations provide plenty of fun-filled activities for the whole family. You can indulge in exciting water excursions or explore diverse wildlife. Here are just a few ideas to spice up your beach vacation:

  • 1. Explore Moody Gardens

    This educational aquarium plus amuseument park is a must in Galveston. Step inside and immerse yourself in three different worlds. Marvel at wild species in the Rainforest Pyramid and Aquatic Pyramid, catch a show at the theater, or relax in the sand at Palm Beach.

  • 2. Fishing

    Matagorda County is known for fishing, thanks to the fresh water of the Colorado River plus the Gulf of Mexico. Take your position and cast your line for black drum and catfish. Or head out to sea on a chartered trip and try your luck for red snapper.

  • 3. Surfing

    A vacation in Surfside isn’t just about lounging and swimming. True to its name, it has consistent waves that offer some of the best surfing in Texas. The shoreline near Texas Street has the finest waves in town.

  • 4. Birding

    If you’re an avid birdwatcher, then Bolivar Peninsula is a must. It’s an incredibly biodiverse region of the Texas Gulf Coast, rich in flora and fauna. Head to the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge and see the roseate spoonbills and snow geese.

  • 5. Attend a concert

    After your beach adventures in Clute, clean the sand off and check out the Clarion at the Brazosport College Campus. This spectacular 600-seat hall hosts musical performances throughout the year.

What to Pack for Your Beach Vacation in Texas

What to Pack for Your Beach Vacation in Texas

For the best possible beach vacation, come prepared.

  • 1. Clothes

    Pack lightweight pants, shorts, and t-shirts. Bring a swimsuit, of course. If you visit in summer when there’s a heatwave and you won't be able to do laundry, be sure to pack plenty of changes of clothes.

  • 2. Shoes

    Bring comfortable shoes that allow your feet to breath but also protect them while hiking or wandering around. Sturdy boots are a good idea if you plan to hike, and water shoes can be useful for little ones at the beach.

  • 3. Tech and gadgets

    You’ll undoubtedly need a good camera to document epic moments for your family and friends. If you’re bringing along multiple electronic devices, pack a port or a hub from which you can concurrently charge several items.

  • 4. Documents

    If you intend to visit Mexico while on your vacation, bring your passport or government-issued ID. It’s good practice to photocopy the two documents and keep the originals and copies separate.

  • 5. Protective gear

    Texas sunshine is hot and bright. Bring waterproof sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. Consider UV-protective swimwear for littler kids.
