Plan a Trip to Galveston Island This Memorial Day Weekend

Make plans to head to Galveston Island this Memorial Day Weekend, highlighted by new amenities, upgraded attractions and more!

Of course, beachgoers will enjoy the island’s 32 miles of sand and surf, but there’s plenty to do and see both on and off the beach during the holiday and throughout the summer season.

Galveston Beach Parks Welcome Visitors with Amenities and Activities

Galveston is home to several beach parks along its coastline – East Beach, Stewart Beach, Seawall Urban Park and Dellanera R.V. Park. These parks offer guests amenities that include restrooms, showers, beach chair rentals, volleyball courts, snack bars and concessions.

A significant improvement at family-friendly Stewart Beach includes a $1.4 million flood mitigation initiative aimed at improving parking in the area. Additionally, new mobile amenities - showers, changing rooms, and bathrooms - will be placed at the beach park.

At Dellanera RV Park on Galveston’s west end, beachgoers can take advantage of a remodeled pavilion and decks with expansive Gulf views.
