The only place [I know of] that you can drink beers is at crystal beach. And you can't really wheel there either, but I'm thinking more of a chill and relax kind of trip. I used to go and bring Cletus, never had any problems, he absolutely loves it.

Two things.

First, the beach you're looking for is Matagorda Beach. It's about an hour from Houston and you have to buy a beach pass but that's only $6-8 for the year. You can buy the beach pass at the beach or at the convenience store in town.

Matagorda Beach is 24 miles of nothing but open sand. Camp where you want, start a campfire of driftwood, fish, drink, swim, play with dogs, etc... We used to go there on occasion during the summer for a day or an overnight beach run.

Second thing is VERY important. In the state of Texas, it is ILLEGAL to walk, drive, or disturb any beach dune that has vegetation. Minor hint here is that according to the law enforcement ALL dunes have vegetation regardless if you can see it or not. Do NOT go anywhere near a dune with your vehicle!!

Have fun and enjoy!!

Not sure how to get there but I'm sure we can figure it out. Why don't you come with us? It'll be good to let Jennifer outdoors sometime, and everybody wants to see the baby!

If it won't budge, get a bigger hammer, if it breaks in the process it needed to be fixed anyway.

Looks like a pretty big group this time I would estimate 15 or more have said yea so far but based on the last 2 trips that usually cuts in half.

HA! At least we're not as bad as some coastal communities, such a new orleans, built in a bowl.
