Cost: $6/car, plus admission to tour the ships or fish
I don’t know which is better… touring the Navy ships or playing at the awesome playground at Seawolf Park. One of our favorite things to do on Galveston day trips is stopping by this Pelican Island Park.
When you pull up, there is a booth to pay for parking and admission to the ships. (You can get the current rates HERE.) On one side of the parking lot are the ships… and on the other is the playground.
There are lots of climbing structures that let you start on one edge and climb your way to the other, without touching the ground. My little ninja warriors tell me it is top notch.
The playground is right by the fishing piers and the water… and is also in full sun… so once we are hot we head to the ships for some shade and air conditioning.
Restroom trucks (with water) are by the ships and port-a-potties are everywhere else in the park… so probably you want to go to see the ships!
