If you’re considering getting away for the long Thanksgiving weekend, might we recommend staying in Galveston? Not only is the area home to a variety of amazing Galveston November events to partake in, but there’s also a few great reasons to book a rental property with Sterling Realtors!

Chill in Ice Land!

Ice Land: Caribbean Christmas is going on for the rest of 2016’s holiday season! Starting in November and rolling through early January, this magnificent event is a series of ice sculptures—a rare treat in Galveston’s climate! Showcasing international ice sculptors and over two million pounds of ice, this year’s theme will leave you feeling like you’re on an undersea cruise. The ocean-themed sculptures include turtles, coral, and all sorts of fish. It’s always worth a visit!

Famous Beaches—All Year Long!

Even a visit to the beach isn’t out of the question! Late November temperatures hover around the high 60s and low 70s during the day—not too shabby for beach weather! In fact, beach outings are rather common among Galveston locals, and you might see a few families out barbequing in full force—it’s not untraditional here! Simply pack a light sweater and you can be out all night, the waves providing a perfect backdrop to the rolls of laughter.

The Holiday Season Begins!

If you’re in town for the best of Galveston’s November events, Thanksgiving, then you’ve got to stick around for the day after—it’s Hotel Galvez’s dramatic lighting ceremony! The Galveston Holiday Lighting Celebration is a free family event that launches the holiday season. The evening is full of excitement and joy, with choir and ballet entertaining the guests. Capping the celebration is Santa Claus himself, arriving in horse-drawn carriage for the lighting of the hotel’s massive Christmas tree!
