#10 - Did Someone Say Beach?
The warm breezes and temperate waters of the Gulf of Mexico are just an hour* away. Take in the historic and recreational attractions on Galveston Island. Enjoy the Historic Pleasure Pier, salt water fishing, the 1877 Tall Ship Elissa, or Moody Gardens, a 242-acre theme park, education center, and pleasure garden, all in one.
We've only just scratched the surface of things to do and see on this fascinating, historic island. Find out more about Galveston Island, the gambling capital and playground of the wealthy before Las Vegas was even a twinkle in anyone's eye.
For a shorter excursion, try the Kemah Boardwalk, located just 45 min.* from the Omni on Galveston Bay. The boardwalk features waterfront dining, retail, and amusements and was voted 2014 Local’s Choice Award Winner for Best Attraction and Best Place to Take A Visitor.
