Driving into Houston from Galveston - Interstate Traffic

Jump to last reply

We will be staying in Galveston for an upcoming beach trip ( June 29-July 7). We are staying in a large beach house with other family members. My husband and I don't care for the beach, and the kids don't really either. We would love to check out several things in Houston including the Space Center, The Natural Science Museum, Fine Arts Museum, The Zoo , The Downtown Aquarium, and maybe a few other things.

It appears to be about a 1 drive from where we are staying in several of the places in Houston. They open at 9. Would that put us into crazy Houston traffic every morning? Are there alternative routes?
