San Luis Pass is spectacular at sunset. The views coming over the water really cannot be missed, and bird watchers will especially enjoy what they see. After that, get cleaned up, and head out for a night on the time. The refreshing sea breeze makes outdoor dining a popular activity, and then head out to any of the many refined bars and clubs that make the city come alive at night. When you have had enough, your lodging is never very far away.
Beyond bird watching, which the area is particularly well known for, there are plenty of other activities away from the water to keep everyone in your party sufficiently entertained.

The Texas Gulf Coast has great weather year round. It is a rare July day when the temperature gets much over 90 degrees, and the nice ocean breeze is always a welcome relief. Visitors will enjoy the almost constant sunshine, making outdoor activities year round all the more enjoyable. Summer storms do pop up with frequency, but the rain typically does not last very long and most find it rather refreshing. The winter is certainly cool, but not so much that it prevents a round of golf, or any of the many other activities this area is known for. With January highs in the 70s and typical lows in the mid-40s, what could get better than that?
Being located at the end of Galveston proper, getting to San Luis Pass really couldn’t be any easier. This is a departing point for numerous cruises, so the airport has frequent flights, and there is bus service as well. If flying into the airport, consider renting a car in order to enjoy the many activities that you have planned. If you live in Texas or surrounding states, traveling by private car is a popular choice for getting to the Pass as well.
