Galveston Beach is approximately just 30 minutes outside of Houston. It's a great day trip to do outdoor activities such as swimming, bike riding or roller blading on the seawall. It's a great way to get out of the city and see the coastline. Be sure to carve out a full day to experience the island and lay on the beach all day. The Sea Wall is also lined with tons of bars/pubs and great eating places.
