Holiday guide to Galveston! | Encore Presentation

GALVESTON – Wednesday, December 28 on Houston Life, an encore presentation of ‘Holiday guide to Galveston!’

The Houston Life team traveled down south to Galveston to give you the BEST guide for holiday family fun on the island.

Moody Gardens has plenty of attractions appealing to kids of ALL ages. They’re also hosting day camps for school-aged kids as well! For more information, you can visit or call 409-744-4673.

For the adults in your family, the world-famous Miracle Pop-Up Bar is back in Galveston with some over-the-top holiday cocktails! The owner of Daiquiri Time Out, Brad Stringer, joined us with some special seasonal drinks and details about the great event.

It’s no secret, Galveston is a GREAT place to visit during the holidays, and Michael Woody, Chief Tourism Officer for Visit Galveston, shared all the things you and your family can do this month on the island. One fun event includes “Christmas Past in Galveston: Holidays at Moody Mansion and Bishop’s Palace.” Our own Enrique Ramirez gave us a closer look at the mansion and more.

Next for all the ice lovers! Melanie Camp took us on an ICY adventure! Ice skating at Moody Gardens is in full swing and is one of the COOLEST things you can do on the island this winter!

Since Galveston is home for sea life, there’s a brand-new art exhibit that you can go see this holiday season. Brad Parks, Conservation Education Director with “Washed Ashore” gave us the deets on this new exhibit and the amazing sea sculptures on display.

And if you know Lauren Kelly, you know shopping is one of her favorite hobbies! She took us on a field trip, showing some great gift ideas perfect for everyone on your list at “Christmas on the Strand.”

If you love The Polar Express, this one’s for you! You can take a ROUND TRIP TO THE NORTH POLE departing from the Railroad Museum in Galveston! While you might be expecting to meet Santa, you never know who else might be on train! Melanie Camp bumped into actor Alan Turdyk!

Y’all know It’s not FRIYAY without our HL Prize Wheel! See what Lisa from La Grange won and check out ALL of the holiday island fun above in the video.
