Blue Bell Ice Cream is widely considered the State ice cream of Texas. I toured the creamery as a child and loved returning on our recent Texas tour with my little ice cream connoisseur, Ouisie.
After touring the creamery, guests are invited into the ice cream parlor for a complimentary scoop of the favourite flavour. Did I mention the food portion sizes are bigger in Texas? I can confirm the same applies with the free ice cream scoop.
The beach is not Destin, Florida and the waters are not Caribbean blue– but Galveston offered a fun day trip to the seaside for Ouisie.
Just an hour from Houston kids can be on the beach, roaring down roller coasters on the Historic Pleasure Pier or touring the aquarium at Moody Gardens. I enjoyed walking The Strand and admiring the century old homes in the historic district.
We finished off our island adventure with sweet treats at La King’s Confectionery located on The Strand. The ice cream parlour and candy displays remain the same as when I visited some thirty years ago. A step back in time where the signature salt water taffy is still unresistable!
What the kids will love: Messy play is allowed and encouraged.
