Galveston is known for being a great beach town in general, but East Beach in particular is great for festivals, live concerts, being pet-friendly, and having great amenities. It has umbrella and chair rentals, clean restrooms and even showers, and there’s also concession stands. If you’re into having a cool adult beverage on a hot Texas day, alcohol is also permitted here. Not only that, but they have an excellent sand castle competition annually, which you won’t want to miss. Living in this neck of the woods is amazing!

Rather than simply living in a beach town, why not be surrounded by beach? At Padre Island, on the Texas Gulf Coast, you’ll find that the living is quite reasonable, if you can handle crowds. Part of living on or at the beach means understanding that others share your enthusiasm and passion for the same place, only they just visit, where you’re able to stay full-time. Swimmers, surfers, and fishermen make great use of the space at Padre Island, and you can too, only you’ll get the pleasure of a year-round stay.
