Moody Gardens offers something for all ages. From the beach area to the pyramids and also a class A restaurant Shearn's. It's my favorite place on Galveston Island. Highly recommend a visit to Moody Gardens. Lots of activities and learning experiences.

Very nice...not extremely large so enjoyable with family. No zip line because of Hurricane Harvey coming in but not their fault. My family had a good time anyway.
