ALREADY KNOWN FOR fantastic views, Pier 6 Seafood & Oyster House is one-upping itself. The restaurant is now offering sunset cruises on Galveston Bay through a partnership with Great Escapes Yacht Charter.


Step aboard a 43-foot power catamaran and enjoy a coastal cruise along Galveston Bay, Clear Lake and Kemah every other Wednesday evening; the $150 per person cost includes two craft cocktails and chef-curated appetizers before the hour-long excursion. There’s an early cruise (cocktails at 5:30pm; departure at 6:15pm) and a late cruise (cocktails at 7:15pm; departure at 8pm). The yacht conveniently docks at the Pier 6 marina, and guests are invited to stay for dinner and hang on the decked-out, two-story covered patio.

Optionally, boaters can extend their night further, booking a stay at the Pier 6 Bungalows, renovated and owned by restaurateur Raz Halili. And the restaurant can coordinate other private yacht charters and dock parties, too.

Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.

WHAT TO DO when a beautiful botanical garden is overgrown with green briars, poison ivy, ragweed, and other undesirable plant species that prevent the growth of new trees? Call in the goats! Specifically, about 120 super cute goats from Rent-a-Ruminant Texas, who return to the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center on Monday, May 20, to partake in a week-long banquet of invasive vegetation, effectively clearing three acres south of the meadow between the South Meadow Trail and the Muscadine Trail along the Outer Loop.
