With my birthday approaching next month my incredible wife asked me what I wanted to do to celebrate. Just like all husbands do I said "I don't know", to which she rolled her eyes and told me that is not helpful. But after chatting a bit more I told her I just want to do something fun together, I don't need any more materialist stuff, we have plenty of that so we decided on a trip. I wanted to do something in Texas and we often visit the Metroplex, we just visited Austin a few months back, so we decided on a trip to Galveston, TX.

I've been looking online for fun things to do in Galveston and there seems to be lots of fun to be had on the famous Pleasure Pier. I'm certain we will take an afternoon or evening to ride the rides like kids and enjoy all the tourist spots. We always enjoy trying new restaurants, especially with all the seafood options available right there on the coast. But what are your favorite parts of Galveston?

I'm Looking For Fun Suggestions in Galveston, Texas

One of my favorite things to do on trips is wake up grab some coffee and walk on the beach. Is there a specific area that you would suggest I visit when making my morning walks? Or is there something that you love in Galveston that isn't mentioned on Trip Advisor or other travel websites? I want to know about the cool stuff that isn't always packed with tourists.

Restaurant Ideas for Galveston, Texas Are Welcomed Too

I'm not a foodie, I just enjoy eating delicious food. It doesn't have to be from a top chef or a five-star restaurant I just want something that tastes yummy. So, if you have any suggestions for Galveston restaurants please send those over my way, you can always send me a message at billy.jenkins@townsquaremedia.com. Thanks for your help!

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

See Inside Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's Malibu Beach House:

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's former beachside house in Malibu offered a gorgeous vacation paradise for the country music power couple to relax.

Brooks and Yearwood bought their 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 4,200-square-foot house in Malibu for slightly less than $5 million in June of 2008. The house itself is fairly modest, but very well-appointed, featuring an open floor plan.

The living room boasts a corner fireplace and multiple sets of French doors that open to the backyard. The kitchen includes marble countertops, while skylights offer plenty of natural California sunlight. The den features floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on either side of a fireplace of white brick.

The backyard is spectacular, featuring a loggia, an outdoor fireplace, a half-court basketball court and elaborate landscaping. The house provides direct access to the world-famous Malibu beach via a set of steps.

The couple sold the house in Malibu in late 2016 for $7 million.
