Local Attractions

Moody Gardens
This family fun destination combines education with entertainment. Choose from a wide variety of attractions, including the three famous pyramids which house an aquarium, a rainforest exhibit, and a discovery museum. The grounds—which sit along the western side of Galveston Bay—also feature a small waterpark, zipline course, IMAX theater, a paddlewheel boat, hotel accommodations, and more.

Pleasure Pier
Situated on a pier jutting out more than 1,100 feet over the Gulf of Mexico, you will find a small amusement park with a big history. Pleasure Pier was originally constructed in 1943, but was destroyed by Hurricane Carla in 1961. The most recent iteration opened in 2012, and features a rollercoaster, Ferris wheel, and 13 other rides for kids of all ages to enjoy.

The Strand
Shopping, dining, parades and other events breathe life into this seaside historic district. Admire the buildings—many of which survived the catastrophic hurricane of 1900—while exploring art galleries, antique shops, confectioners, cafes, and quirky boutiques.

Energy Plans


Katy, Texas is Old Town charm juxtaposed with the ever-growing modern energy industry. This young city is known for its excellent schools, proximity to the Energy Corridor, and family-friendly vibe. Katy ISD consistently ranks in the top 20 school districts in the state, and churns out first-rate youth sports programs. It doesn’t take long to discover that Friday Night Lights is serious business—Katy High has taken home 8 state champ titles, something the locals are fiercely proud of.


Fort Worth

It’s the “City of Cowboys and Culture.” You can witness a cattle drive of breathtaking Texas Longhorns (with horns spanning from 5–6 feet, tip to tip), and enjoy world-renowned artwork, all between lunch and dinner. Fort Worth’s eight entertainment districts create a unique blend of the Old West and modern culture that no city does better. With headquarters to massive companies—like Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, and Pier 1 Imports—along with quaint neighborhoods, and affordable housing, it’s no wonder that Fort Worth is one of America’s fastest-growing cities.
