Spring Break

You and your family will enjoy spending Spring Break at Gaido’s Seaside Inn.

Stay with the Gaido family in Galveston for Spring Break and you might just leave your car in our parking lot, 'cause it is all right here for you and your family.


Daytime Fun

Many Spring Break families spend the entire day in our super-sized crystal clear, waterfall fed swimming pool and enormous hot tub, but if you choose to "hit the beach" there is plenty of sand just a few steps across Seawall Boulevard. If you choose to sightsee, our knowledgeable and "Texas Friendly" bilingual staff look forward to sharing their "Insider" secrets about the best to see and do on the Island.

Entertainment After Dark

You’ll like the way the water in our pool and hot tub changes color when the sun goes down. When the kids have temporarily had enough of sand, water, and sun, 5 different restaurants are within 2 blocks, and a the Historic Galveston Island Pleasure Pier is a 10-minute stroll down Seawall Boulevard.
