My First Trip to Galveston Beach My family has always wanted to take a trip down to Galveston during the torrid summer. It was an exciting feeling to get away from the dry heated bustle of summer living in Dallas. Every summer, my family packs up and hits the superhighway to our well awaited family vacation. As we drove through city after city, it became apparent that the world around us was changing. As I was peering through the back seat window, I noticed that the cities outside of town are defiantly different from living in the big city. There aren’t any tall skyscrapers or backed up bumper to bumper traffic, instead there are huge golden fields of corn and hay stacks, farms and huge bludgeon black cows. We continued to drive for about thirty more minutes, and I soon realized that we were getting close to the beach. I could smell the salt in the cool breeze of air from my window. It was mixed with the sweet fragrance of food from the boardwalk. When we arrived at our destination, my father checked us into our rooms at the Silver Leaf Resort. I really wasn’t paying too much attention to my surroundings, because I was bursting with excitement wanting to go to the beach. I begged my mother and father till I turned blue saying “please can we go to the beach now.” “Pretty please with sure on top.” My father just looked at me with that solemn face he always has and said “yes, baby girl we can unpack later.” “Now let’s head to the beach.” I screamed like a banshee with excitement and ran to the room and changed into my swim wear. I grabbed my maroon beach towel with my pale and shovel, and my mini purse that contained my shades, bubbles, and sun screen. My father carried me down on his shoulders out of the hotel, and when we finally reached the beach my father let me down. When my feet touched the lukewarm sand it felt as if I stepped into a bowl of uncooked grits and they were stuck in between my toes. As

    There’s a lot of great things I saw on my trip to Galveston, Texas. My favorite place there was the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, while I was there I got on the roller coaster… that was very interesting. There was kids scared to even get on it because a lot of different people were saying things about it. It was “scary” or maybe “you’ll fall off of it”, I was frightened. From far far away you can see the ships when you were around the beach. They looked sketchy, but, whenever I looked…

    One summer my family and I went to Indiana Beach. It took us a while to get there, but it was worth the drive. Plus, on the way we stopped at Steak ‘n Shake to eat, which made it better for the trip there. First, we rode the sky lift. We wanted to get a good look at all of the rides before we started riding any of them. While on the sky lift, I saw a lot of cool roller coasters and other awesome rides. I knew the second I saw the Hoosier Hurricane, that it was going to be my first ride of the day…

    The first time I traveled to Virginia Beach was in March of year 2015, the second time I went was in may of year 2017.
