If you are looking for an adventurous and adrenaline-pumping summer getaway, why not head down to the Texas Gulf's own Galveston Beach for some exercise, barbecue, camping and festivities?
On Saturday, August 14th head down to Porretto Beach for the Galveston Sand Crab 5K & 10K. The race begins at 9PM and starts and finishes at Porretto Beach. Get a little bit of exercise under the stars and celebrate your achievement with some good-old fashioned BBQ & beer, surrounded by great music and a bonfire! The course will be lit with tiki torches and glow sticks, and you need to make sure to bring your own flashlight or headlamp.
Feeling really adventurous? Camp out at Porretto Beach for race weekend. It costs $50 for a camping permit, and Porretto Beach will hook you up with 1 free tent, 1 unlimited parking pass for re-entry access, and free access to all bathrooms and portable showers.
Although the heat from these summer months can be gruesome, why not camp out by the beach for a romantic stay-cation and jump in the water when you get too hot? That's my plan!
