Moody Gardens Hotel
This week, we celebrated my mother’s birthday in Galveston, Texas. We rented a Mazda CX-5 with a sunroof to drive to Galveston Island. We stayed at the Moody Gardens Hotel on Galveston Island. It’s located in the middle of town. We enjoyed both theme park and ocean views from our hotel room. We didn’t plan on staying here, but after our planned hotel was overbooked Expedia generously booked the Moody Gardens Hotel for us. I was super excited because we planned for the past two years to stay at the Moody Gardens Hotel during Christmas time, but something always came up. It’s not just a hotel, it’s a convention center too.
Guests can enjoy the aquarium pyramid, rain forest pyramid, MG 3D Theater and more! In addition, to theses amazing attractions, Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston is on the grounds of Moody Gardens as well. Did you know that African Americans were not allowed to enter theme parks except on Juneteenth? While watching an interview with Phylicia Rashad, I discovered this important fact.
THINGS WE DID:
- Drove to the beach
- Grabbed some food from Fish Tales
- Chilled by the pool with masks
- Celebrated my Mom’s Birthday
- Learned about Galveston, Texas a little bit more
