Houston is actually about 50 miles inland. Galveston would be my first choice.

I have lived in Houston for over 25 years and have been to Galveston many times. I don't want to burst your bubble but, in case you are making a long journey you should know that the beaches are not white sand and crystal blue water. The water is murkey and more brown than green unless you go out to the sanbars. The Strand is alot of fun, plenty of shops, bars, and restaurants.

The trip is not really far. In Houston 50 miles is nothing!

heh, but driving 50 miles for Galveston... not so great. Its a beach, but not a postcard beach. You'd probably have more fun in the town of Galveston then on the beach itself.
