GALVESTONWHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SPOT IN GALVESTON? COMMENT BELOW!

We’re kicking off summer at one of our favorite destinations -- Galveston!

Our show is on the road, on location at east beach checking out all there is to do on the island.

REEL IN YOUR OWN DINNER

We’ll see what it’s like to get out on the open water with a fishing charter.

Then go inside a local restaurant who’s cooking up the fish you catch!

SURFING SUMMER CAMP

Or why not learn to surf? a local surf shop is offering up lessons for adults and morning camps for kids.

It’s a great way for your kids to spend the morning while the adults take a break.

Could Melanie Camp hang ten with the 10 year-olds?

Galveston seems to have endless things to do for families -- but some of our favorites are free!

We’ll get the details on a family beach challenge, free beach tours and festivals.
