One again we are working on featuring fun things you can do on just a tank of gas from here in Texas Forest Country. I know growing up as a kid here, the summer was not complete without a trip to Galveston. When I was younger we were there just about every weekend when I lived closer to the beach.

This event is a big departure from the tours of the Moody Mansion we used to take as kids. Hotel Galvez & Spa offers a "Dinner With The Ghosts" twice this month on Wednesday August 8th and on Thursday August 9th at 6pm.

During the tour, the hotel’s concierge guides participants through the ghostly past of the hotel followed by three-course dinner in the Galvez Bar & Grill. Priced at $65 per person (inclusive), the 1 1/2 hour public ghost tour is only available as part of the ghost dinner package.

If you really want to go you have to make reservations in advance. I know that's something we aren't used to. For reservations, please call (409) 765-7721. See special offers for details on overnight package at www.HotelGalvez.com. Hotel Galvez and its ghosts have been featured on “Ghost Lab” on the Discovery Channel and “Ghost Stories” on The Travel Channel.
