Family getaways are always a great way to create memories for a lifetime, but sometimes it can be difficult to decide between attractions. You want something that will appeal to all ages, provide entertainment, and sustain interest. Additionally, you don’t want to drive too far to get there. With this in mind, here's a list of three perfect places to take the family.
First, the Kemah Boardwalk is a first-rate place for family fun. Only about 10 minutes away from League City, Kemah is considered one of the finest such attractions in the country. This complex includes midway games, shops, restaurants, and a large selection of rides.
Also, located about 45 minutes away in Galveston, Moody Gardens offers a myriad of entertainment options for all, including an Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid, Discovery Pyramid, and the exciting Reef Rescue virtual reality coral reef diving experience.
Lastly, plan to spend a day on the water at Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston. They offer exciting water slides, wave rivers, water coasters, and much more, including a swim-up bar for Mom and Dad, free parking and picnic areas.
