Meander down the winding boardwalk to the churning beach, and let the sound of the crashing waves lull you to sleep (just don’t forget to put on sunscreen first). Back on the pool deck, an infinity pool, complete with a streaming waterfall and bubbling hot tub, awaits you on sunny Galveston days. So, whether you’re making sandcastles with the kids or admiring the view from the edge of the infinity pool, contented bliss is sure to find you. What’s more, barbecue grills are stationed next to the boardwalk. So, cook up a fresh catch or the classic burgers and hot dogs to complete the perfect pool day.

The activity center also features foosball, air hockey, and arcade games for those with a competitive spirit. Not to mention, you can bring the competition out to the basketball court or sand volleyball court.

Of course, you’ll want to keep up with your workout routine, and the fitness center makes it easy. Hop on the treadmill, or grab some free weights, and get to work!
