Romantic Getaways in Texas: Galveston

In the city of Galveston, the beach is part of life. For short stays, there are resorts that offer luxury accommodations like the Mermaid and Dolphin or the Moody Garden Hotel and Spa. Other hotels have direct beach access.

Beach rentals are a very popular choice for both price and privacy. Some are time-shares, but there are cottages that you can treat as a home away from home. The best way to select one is using Google maps and really zooming in with the satellite view. Compare that to online photos and you will have a much better idea of what kind of access you will have to both the shore and shopping. Some Galveston beach area attractions include the Strand Theatre and the Grand Opera House

A word of caution - avoid going to the beach hotels during spring break. Unless you want non-stop parties and crowds, the quiet season is between November and May. This also gives visitors from colder northern states a great time to get some relief from the ice and snow.

Further to the south, small vacation towns along the coast give even more seclusion without being isolated.

Romantic Getaways in Texas: Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi and points south have a tropical climate, with weather only being a concern from June through November. During the deepest northern winters, the sun and surf are perfect. With the large college crowds heading to Mexico, this section of the Gulf coast can be a perfect place to book a private cottage by the shore.

The option for a romantic getaways in Texas road trip between bed and breakfast inns is a great way to see the towns and fishing villages while finding some of the tiny beaches known, but not advertised, by locals. Asking in person leads to finding hidden treasures.
