In my opinion this is a tourist trap. I mean, the rides are cool, but it's pretty expensive to go. Also, I wouldn't bring a little one in a stroller, there's literally nothing to do with them, especially if you're alone.

There are some great photos you can take of the pier from the beach though, and at night all the lights are lit up on the ride, looks pretty rad.

It is just at cool as the photo! It does cost money to get on the pier. You can't just go wonder around the pier.

My sisters and I enjoyed the day in Galveston! We watched the sun rise on the beach.. then had breakfast at Denny’s. Then we went on a four person bike ride. Then spent a lot of the day at pleasure pier. We went to the rainforest cafe for refreshments and to cool down. We then road the ferry back and forth watching for dolphins. Then enjoyed the rest of the evening back out on pleasure pier. It was a wonderful day lots to do in the area.
