Houston we have a new attraction!

Just south of Houston, down 45S in Galveston, we finally have a pier to go to where family and friends can enjoy the recreational fun right off the gulf coast. There are several restaurants and great rides for all ages. This is exciting and a great attraction for Galveston.So far reviews have been favorable, I am looking forward to taking my kids.

In Houston, and the surrounding area their has been a need for a true amusement park, we get a yearly rodeo experience, but when we lost AstroWorld, it seemed like we lost a great family attraction.Now the new pier will give families in the area a new spot to enjoy, and tourist something extra.

There are hotels and nice restaurants in walking distance. The Pleasurepier offers discounted tickets for hotel visitors. According to the local news, this attraction is just the beginning of more fun to come. Perhaps there will be more attractions in the future. The pier is owned by Landry Inc. The Ceo is Tilman J. Fertitta who grew up in Galveston. He has restaurants and other attractions in the surrounding area. It is good someone is looking to build and revive Galveston after hurricane IKE.

So what type of rides and food?

The attraction offers the usual family theme park atmosphere, with the traditional foods like pizza, burgers, funnel cakes,turkey legs and of course seafood. It actually reminds me of the Kemah Boardwalk. The rides look exciting, from the traditional carousel to the thrilling roller coasters. There are also games that make you feel like you are at a carnival or fair.

      Well the picture sure looks like fun! What a beautiful setting right there off the water! I've never been to Texas, unfortunately, but I've always been a fan of amusement parks! This sounds like a wonderful place to visit!
