Stewart Beach… Galveston’s Family Beach & Playground!
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.
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.
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.
