Know what I want to do this summer? Head to Beachtown down on the Texas coast. Similar to planned coastal communities in Florida such as Seaside and Alys Beach, Beachtown is the Texas version.
Centered around three well-defined neighborhood squares, all the homes, condos, and town homes reflect the early architecture of Galveston, and there are coffee shops, general stores, and parks throughout the town.
Property and homes are for sale, but lucky for me rentals will come available this summer. Click here to read more about this place I'm hoping to make a summer tradition.
