We took an impromptu trip to Galveston which turned in to us camping on the beach. If you haven't done this, I HIGHLY recommend you do it pronto! In this post I'll share the location, the stuff we bought at Walmart, the stuff I wish we bought, & a few tips.
Let's cut right to the chase- the location (because let's be honest- that's why you're reading this)
Location: 10202 Bluewater Hwy, Freeport, TX 77541
While Cody was in Walmart buying our supplies, I was in the truck googling, "Free beach camping in Galveston". I found a few youtube videos and a few Google "check-ins, " and none of them really gave me an address but all suggested Surfside Beach. After navigating to Surfside's official website and reading through their rules & regulations, I determined that the address I provided for you, was the one for us. Your GPS will should take you to Public Beach Access Road 5, which is near a complex named, "Peregrine Townhomes." (You could even use the townhomes' address) *Heads up! There is a beach on google that has 248+ reviews named, "Surfside (Free) Beach," this is NOT that location.
Rules: This is downloaded straight from Surfside's website (and how I found our location)

Tips & Tidbits:
This was our first time taking The Mick to the beach, and since we adopted him last year, we have no idea if he's ever been before, but I think it's safe to say that he LOVED it! I've watched this video of the wind blowing his ears back about 23 times. I can't with his cute Yoda self!
