Galveston Holiday Vacation Guide

What to Do

Ice Land at Moody Gardens

Moody Gardens provides parkas for visitors to Ice Land (Tip: Bring your own gloves) as you experience ice sculptures at 9 degrees.  Your kids can learn about all the animals included inside.

Just when you think the ice carvers have shown you everything, there's a slide made of ice for kids and grownups!

Kids can even say hello to Santa!

Festival of Lights

You and your family can walk the grounds of Moody Gardens while enjoying dazzling holiday lights!

Dickens on the Strand

If you or your kids enjoyed reading A Christmas Carol, you'll love to see everyone dressed up for Dickens on the Strand!

Where to Stay

Moody Gardens Hotel

The Moody Gardens Hotel staff decorate the hotel lobby for the holidays.  There are also a variety of holiday activities for guests.  We made s'mores before heading to the Festival of Lights!

What to Eat

The Garden Restaurant in the Aquarium Pyramid at Moody Gardens

The Garden Restaurant at the Aquarium Pyramid at Moody Gardens features a Holiday Dinner Buffet when the Festival of Lights is going on and Christmas Day Buffet!
