Texas Beaches

Growing up in Houston when someone mentioned going to the beach you immediately thought of Galveston’s main beach. While this isn’t the worst beach, it certainly doesn’t do much on the ambiance scale and it can get a bit crowded. If you’re craving a different kind of seaside weekend getaway this summer that’s totally worth the extra drive, look no further than our list of the best beaches in Texas  (in no particular order):

Both are equally as beautiful and close enough that you can get the best of both areas.
