It's been years since I've been to Galveston. Planning on going there in July (the only time we can go). We are going for the beach. I know it isn't a great beach, but it is the closest in driving distance. We are coming from the DFW area. Family is my wife and I, my 10 yr old son and 6 yr old daughter. Please tell me some good places to stay that are on the beach or seawall. We usually stay at the Victorian, but that was declining over the last 2 trips. we would also prefer a place with a frig and at least a microwave. I already know that the Flagship and commodore are dumps. We also want a safe place for the sake of the kids. I need the help of the experts ( that's YOU!!) Please help me. Thanks for your help.
