A Great Day Trip Full of Learning

Moody Gardens is a short drive from each of our vacation rental homes along Galveston Bay.  It is family friendly and you can easily spend all day touring the exhibits and splashing in the water park.

The Park is easily recognizable by land or sea by its iconic glass pyramids.  Within the 3 glass pyramids, you’ll find completely different experiences.  In the Aquarium Pyramid, you will learn about the ocean and meet penguins, sharks. In the Rainforest Pyramid, you’ll enter an entirely different eco-system; the Rainforest is complete with close encounters with free-roaming monkeys, macaws and other endangered animals and plants. In the last Pyramid, you can  learn about the mysteries of science and enjoy the MG 3D Theater and 4D Theater. Outside, you can opt to take a cruise around Offatts Bayou aboard the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat.  During the hotter summer months, you can cool off by floating along the lazy river, wave pool and more at Palm Beach.  During the holidays, the entire area transforms for the Festival of Lights.

Coming in May 2017, the Aquarium Pyramid will have its Grand Re-Opening. The Aquarium has undergone a multi-million renovation over the last 2 years.  Among some of the new exhibits that will be unveiled, there’s a second penguin habitat that is being added and a $37 million coral reef exhibit.  The new exhibit will offer a close up view of the penguins so that you can enjoy seeing these creatures frolic and play as they go about their routines with their sometimes over-the-top personalities.
