Best Beach: Galveston Island State Park

With so many public beaches nearby, it can be hard to choose. But, for a $5 entrance fee, the one at Galveston Island State Park, should be your beach of choice. Bathrooms, showering stations, camp sites and even a vast bay side with wildlife viewing makes this not only unique but fun for everyone.
