When you’re looking forward to a guys’ getaway with your best buddies, setting your sights on the beachside city of Galveston is always a good choice! Just about an hour from Houston, this is an ideal destination when you’re up for a getaway that can be easily customized to your travel crew’s style. As picturesque as it is thrilling and fun, Galveston has something for everyone. The following three-day itinerary is the perfect place to start when you’re ready to maximize the adventure.
After a breakfast enjoyed in the comfort and convenience of your luxury rental booked through Porter, it’s time to head out and explore on day one. Begin with some well-deserved time on the beach which is always a highlight of a Galveston getaway any time of year. Next, you’ll want to make your way to the Galveston Seawall which was initially designed to protect Galveston from hurricanes but has grown to span more than 10 miles and hosts an urban park where city and sand go hand-in-hand. Once you’ve had your fill of sightseeing here, it’s time to check out The Strand. This historic part of town is a perfect place to set your sights on early 20th-century architecture and check out a variety of shops and restaurants.
Dedicate your afternoon to time enjoyed at Moody Gardens Amusement Park. This is a stop where you’ll find easy access to an aquarium, water park, zoo, and botanical gardens all in one! There are also theaters on-site and mini golf to enjoy too. If you’re feeling parched after all of the excitement, a stop at Brews Brothers is the perfect place to find yourself. This fun gastropub has an impressive selection of craft beers and drinks on tap to enjoy that are sure to satisfy.
This evening, treat yourself to a seafood-focused dinner at Shrimp & Stuff Restaurant. The menu here has something delicious for everyone to enjoy, the vibe is laid back and the service is friendly.
The second day of your stay in Galveston with your best guy friends at your side is going to be focused on the waves. Getting out on the water just might be the highlight of your adventure, especially when you book a day of chartered fishing with the Galveston Fishing Charter Company. This team has been serving Galveston for years and knows the very best spots to reel in something exciting. Whether you make it a half-day or full-day of inshore or off-shore adventuring, you’ll find everything you need for a successful excursion is included in the cost of the fishing tour.
Once you’re back on land, make sure to make time for a well-deserved dinner at Cajun Greek. This is a great place for seafood selections that are sure to satisfy but the menu also features po boys. If you’re not sure where to begin, the gumbo and crawfish at Cajun Greek often come highly recommended. When dinner is done, it’s time to keep the fun going at Float Pool & Patio Bar. This is a top spot in town for vibrant nightlife thanks to its beach party vibes, live DJ, and swim-up bar.
After enjoying a late morning snooze on day three of your guys’ getaway journey to Galveston, treat yourself to a delicious breakfast before heading over to the Galveston Country Club to enjoy a round with your best buddies. This is a beautiful golf course that’s suitable for golfers of all skill levels. There are options to book lessons if you could use a refresher, but if you’re looking for a challenge, you’ll find that here too. Make sure to make your tee time well in advance as this is a popular place to find yourself in Galveston.
After you’ve sunk the last hole on the course, it’s time to dine in Italian style at Mario’s Seawall Italian Restaurant. Here, you’ll find amazing ocean views to enjoy as well as a variety of traditional Italian favorite dishes and pizza as well. Take time to linger and relax in the late afternoon before making your way to O’Malley’s Stage Door for the evening. This beloved pub is the perfect place to shoot some pool, enjoy a Guinness, and grab a late-night snack when cravings come calling once more.
