Palm Beach at Moody Gardens
The sun is out, and Moody Gardens is revving up for an adventurous summer as its popular Palm Beach opens for the season, billed as Galveston`s only white sand beach.
Mom and Dad could probably use a little R&R too, which makes this the perfect hot spot for chill-laxing.
