Stewart Beach… Galveston’s Family Beach & Playground!

Stewart Beach in Gaveston Digging
Address:  201 Seawall Blvd, 6th St. and Seawall Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550
Cost: $8+/car. See the details HERE.

I came to Houston from San Diego, where I lived right at the beach.  Each day I would walk to the water and run, watch or have a bonfire… but usually not swim because the Pacific is cold!

Now I’m in Houston, where people love to not love the Galveston beaches… but I really do like having them so close.  And my kids really like to dig and splash.

So, more and more, we’ve been packing up the minivan and making the short 45 minute drive from Downtown to Galveston.  Our last trip took us to the family beach… Stewart Beach!

Located right after I45 turns into Broadway… and where Broadway meets the Seawall, the beach is very easy to find.  Admission is $8+ per car (or you could walk in for free… but street parking also costs money).

This beach has a pavilion, concessions, restrooms, showers, playground, volleyball courts and more.  No alcohol is allowed on this family beach.

On a weekday, we found a parking spot close to the beach, walked just a short distance and were digging in the sand in no time. Umbrellas and chairs were available for rent, but next time I’m bringing an (affiliate) umbrella or pop up tent!

The kids dug and splashed for hours… and for the first time in their lives, they told me they were ready to go rather than me pleading with them to go home.

After the sand, we stopped by the pavilion and saw the coolest (and shaded) boat playground. When the kids were exhausted from playing, we packed up and headed home.
