Homewood Suites By Hilton Galveston Description
Easy access to Stewart Beach and Porretto Beach and just a couple of the reasons you want to stay here. Lounge chairs provide a welcome relaxation while umbrellas offer relief from the sun. Spend the day lounging, or head out into the wonderful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you need beach supplies you can stop into Wings Beachwear and pick up anything you may have forgotten, like a swimsuit, or perhaps some souvenirs. East Beach is just a little farther down but offers some seclusion from the crowds. This is where you can see the annual American Institute of Architects (AIA) Sandcastle Competition. Alcohol is permitted on this beach. While there, you can treat yourself to a sunset ride from Galveston Island Horse and Pony Rides. Stop along the way and enjoy the East End Lagoon Nature Preserve and take in the scene of the Fort San Jacinto Historic Point.
