Stay overnight or for a few days on a sailboat docked at Kemah Seabrook marina. This can be a nice alternative to conventional hotel. Marina has swimming pool, places to walk, barbecue grills as well as nice views to watch boat traffic going in and out of the Galveston bay and Clear Lake. Fishing places are nearby as well as Kemah seafood market and boardwalk with its restaurants, amusement park rides and other events. NASA/JSC, City of Houston is not too far away as well as Galveston island.
