Galv Vaca-What beach to visit?

I will be visited Galveston in a few weeks and I need some assistance on what to do? What beach should we visit (2adult/2kids) What are costs of beach visits? Staying at Townplace Suites Marriott. Any information that can be provided is greatly appreciated. Trying to make this vacation a fantastic/relaxing getaway.

One of Galveston's most popular beaches, Stewart Beach is conveniently located at 6th and Seawall Blvd, just off Broadway. Stewart Beach is family friendly and offers a variety of amenities that make it the perfect spot to take the family for a 'day at the beach.' A children's play area, beach umbrella and chair rentals, an outdoor pavilion, souvenir shop, and freshwater showers ensure visitors have an enjoyable, comfortable visit

tewart Beach is located at 6th Street and Seawall Blvd on the northeast side of Galveston Island. Admission is $8 per car and $16 for buses and RVs. Stewart Beach hours of operation are: March through May - 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays, 8 am to 6 pm during weekends; June through September - 8 am to 6 pm on weekdays, 8 am to 7 pm during weekends; October - closed on weekdays; 9 am to 6 pm during the first two weekends only; November through February - closed.


Go over to a Galveston post that I just made and it is loaded with sightseeing info about Galveston. It is titled:Holiday Inn on the beach and it's in the Galveston Forum. I posted it about 30 mins ago.
