Welcome to our third and last installment of the Chevy Texas Summer Road Trip Series! So far we’ve taken detours to Dallas and Austin aboard the Chevy Equinox and the Chevy Bolt. In this third part, we take a trip further south to the beachside city of Galveston. A family trip to the beach is best made in a safe and comfortable vehicle. Something big enough to transport luggage, beach chairs and lots of sand toys. With a third row, the Chevy Traverse was big enough to comfortably seat four adults and two car seats. Our back seat passengers were particularly impressed by the rear seat air vents. Keeping everyone comfortable with space and cool blowing air was no problem in this ride!

Of course, the Traverse had many of the key features we enjoyed in the Equinox, but on a larger scale. This vehicle is ideal for families that need space but want to have some luxury. This is not your mama’s minivan! The Traverse is a sizable but much more stylish option. We were pleased to find we seldom had to fill the tank with gas. While not an electric Chevy Bolt, it did seem cost effective for a larger vehicle.

Our first stop on our trip to Galveston was Moody Gardens. While there we took in the aquarium and Palm Beach. Both attractions were fun for both the kids and adults. Palm Beach is the perfect, small water park for toddlers and younger children. With several winding slides, a wave pool, and a lazy river, we spent an entire day there. The Moody Gardens Aquarium allows children and adults to gently touch stingrays and jellyfish. If you time it right you can even see the penguins getting fed! While there be sure you walk under the aquarium as pictured below. For a moment you can imagine what it feels like to step into the ocean.
