Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
When it’s the heat of the summer and the kids are out of school, nothing beats a trip to Galveston. It may not be a Caribbean paradise, but its laid-back vibe and plethora of family-friendly attractions more than make up for that. Two of the best things to do in Galveston also happen to be fun for all ages: Magic Carpet Golf and Rita’s Italian Ice. Play ocean-themed mini golf, then cool off with a refreshing Italian ice or frozen custard (or a combo of both!) for the ultimate Texas summer day trip – after soaking up some rays at the beach, of course!
Magic Carpet Golf does not have a website, so Google is your best bet for finding their current hours and pricing information.
