Galveston Island, TX
We went to Galveston during Spring Break of 2000. We stayed at a great hotel on the water, where we could look out our balcony and watch everyone on the beach, even the surfers. I must say, it isn't the prettiest beach I have seen. The water is murky and filled with tons of seaweed, but I did find some beautiful shells. Also, there are great places to eat, even if you do not like seafood. We ate at a wonderful Mexican restaraunt called " The Original Mexican Restaraunt " and it was the best I've ever had.
