What is the best beach area in Galveston for little kids (ages 1 & 4) to just sit and play in the sand etc?
Last year, our extended family stayed at the SeaScape Condos, directly on the beach. They had a private beach, that was great because it was not crowded at all, even in the middle of July! Otherwise, I would try one of the many beach pocket parks. Crystal Beach, across the ferry from Galveston also is supposed to have nice beaches.
Might look at galveston.com for more info
