Galveston Summer 2018 is projected to be one of the best in recent memory. Spring 2018 on Galveston Island has been without any major storms and the temperatures have been mild as well. Traditional Spring Freezing Canadian cold fronts did not reach Galveston this year so we have been and still remain calm and mild during Spring 2018. As each day brings us closer to the Memorial Day Week-End, Galveston prepares for the huge Holiday visitor population. Memorial Day Week-End is the traditional “Kick-Off” event to Galveston Summer 2018. Make plans early if you intend on staying over night. A sell out for accommodations will be a certainty. Come early and stay late. Don’t miss out on the fun. If you need a place to crash on Memorial Day Week-End Call Marilyn at 281.773.4210.

The Beach and Gulf of Mexico is the obvious big attraction. Everything plays to it and revolves around it. Bring beach clothes. Everybody wears beach clothes almost everywhere. Sunscreen, don’t forget the sunscreen for you and the kids! If you need beach clothes and / or sunscreen after you arrive in Galveston, both are available at all the expected locations. Hats, sunglasses, and cover-ups are also going to be needed for your stay to be comfortable. Early season SUN tends to be stronger than most people realize. Therefore, beware of sunburns. Take care of your skin. Keep applying it to your children throughout the day. They really have no concept of the dangers of too much sun! If possible bring, rent, or buy a beach umbrella. Shad can be your best friend when having fun at the beach or on the water.
Fluids are important. Drink Plenty Of Water. I know many of you enjoy adult beverages when having fun but mixing alcohol and sun don’t mix well. However, if you do, . . . drink a bottle of water every now and then. You can thank me on Tuesday when you back at home or work!
One final thought. If you are going to fish anywhere . . BUY a Fishing License. They are required by State Law. Fishing without a fishing license will be an expensive mistake if you get caught and written up by a Game Warden.
