Choosing where you’ll go on your honeymoon is just as important as any other detail you’ll come across while planning your wedding. This special time is for the two of you to relax after the stress and excitement of your special day and connect with one another before returning back to your everyday lives. To make sure it’s everything you hoped it would be, you’ll want to select a location like Galveston Texas, where there’s plenty of attractions and romantic things to do in Galveston but you can also feel comfortable doing as little as you want and just enjoying the moment with your new spouse. If you choose this Gulf Coast city as your honeymoon destination, consider adding the following ideas to your itinerary.
Lounge on the Beach
One of the biggest draws to the Galveston area is its white sandy beaches and
, warm waters. There is more than 30 miles of shoreline where you can swim, soak in the sun, or get adventurous and try some of the water sports that are offered. East Beach has a lively atmosphere and many amenities, and you can feel free to bring alcohol with you. Stewart Beach is more family oriented, with volleyball games, sandcastle contests, and food stands nearby. Galveston Island State Park is a quieter option, as it is more secluded down on the west end of the island. There, you can bird watch, kayak, and fish.
Sail Away at Sunset
Grab prime seating to watch the sun set over the water while you set sail from the Galveston Harbor on a two-hour sunset cruise. The open-air tour boat offers an unobstructed view as the sky turns magnificent colors and dusk falls over the city. You are welcome to bring snacks and beverages with you.
Go on a Bike Ride
If you’re an active couple, consider renting bikes and going on a scavenger hunt to see some of Galveston’s most unique attractions. Located in various spots throughout the east end of the Historic District are several tree sculptures that were carved out of dead trees. You can get a map of the Tree Sculpture Tour and see how many you can find.
Take in the Sights from a Horse-Drawn Carriage
Cozy up in a horse-drawn carriage as it takes you around to explore the sights of Galveston’s downtown Strand area. You’ll slowly wind through the tree-lined streets in one of the most romantic settings and learn more about the architectural history of the city as you’re transported back in time.
