Texas City to Winnie

July 29, 2016
Texas City - Harvest Moon RegattaTX 124 / TX 87 / TX 45

If water is your thing, this Texas City to Winnie ride is for you. In addition to hugging the shoreline and enjoying the serenity induced by the unspoiled views, there’s the out-of-the-ordinary experience of riding your wheels onto the Galveston-Port Bolivar ferry. Watch for dolphins and seagulls to escort you on the 15-minute journey across the bay. Galveston, with its 30 miles of beaches and historic architecture, awaits you on the other side. Do yourself a favor, and take advantage of the availability of fresh seafood and wrap your lips around a shrimp po’boy.
