Galveston Island is a beautiful, historic beach destination where you can get your toes in the sand, take a leisurely stroll through the Historic Downtown District, or catch a Happy Hour at a cool bar. But if you’re looking for group activities, there are plenty of things to on our charming little island.
Here are some fun group activities to check out:
Escape the Island
Escape the Island at 910 21st St. is a live escape room experience where people can work together, find clues and solve puzzles in order to escape from a themed room in 60 minutes. It requires out of the box thinking, observational skills and teamwork to beat the clock. Everyone contributes to the process with the variety of skills and background that they bring. It is fast paced and demanding but great fun when the "aha" moments that lead to progress prove to be correct. Come join the fun and book your escape room today. Remember, in order to Escape the Island.....you must first escape the room. For more details, call (832) 221-8080.
