We are a 40ish Canadian couple looking forward to 10 days in Texas in late May - Houston, San Antonio, Austin. We are landing in Houston on a Friday night and leaving for San Antonio on Sunday morning. For our 2 nights in Houston, we will be staying downtown at the Four Seasons. We need help deciding how to spend our Saturday.
The coast is tempting us and we are trying to decide whether to spend Saturday exploring Houston sites or heading to Galveston for the day. We are 100% motivated by food, drink, and a scenic walk. We have a car but dont want to spend the day in it.
We are leaning toward Galveston - mostly because the rest of our holiday is inland - but don't want to spend a charmless day in a touristy place if Houston offers better food and drink walking adventures.
