The Bishop's Palace, The Moody Mansion and 'The Strip'
Fondest memory: Shopping on 'The Strip,' old downtown Galveston. It has been restored, or perhaps I should say is a work in progress. Much detail has been given to authenticity, and keeping the 1800-ness in tact.
Visit Moody Gardens.
Moody gardens is a great place to visit, you can spend the whole day here with your family. Every interest can be satisfied, you can choose from Aquarium, Rainforest Pyramid, Discovery Pyramid, a triple deck sternwheeler The Colonel, and, of course, the IMAX theater.
Rainforest Pyramid is a covered artifical tropical forest with plants you can find only in Amazon's Selva in real life. And IMAX is a 3d-movie theater - great place!
For more information on this attraction, please refer to Galveston Island Internet site.
Fondest memory: Rows of people in IMAX cinema watching 3d movie. This is really fun to look a lot of people in weird glasses with their hands leaning to 3d illusions in front of them. 3d cinema is cool anyway. IMAX theatre in moody gardens has several different films showed on its screen. On the photo: my colleague Rooman (on the right) and I, sitting in IMAX thatre next to hundreds of other people, wearing that special glasses required for creating 3D effect.
