Yeah that's what I'm going to have to do hoping that a re-schedule is not necessary.

I live in El Paso so... it's kind of a long trip and that's why I don't want it to get ruined by the weather.

Currently I only own a Capital One card, I'll ask them is they have that kind of insurance. Thank you.

Thatís a long trip to go to a mediocre beach. Why not somewhere that has prettier water like South Padre? Same travel time, much prettier water.

Port Aransas has MUCH better water than Galveston if you're just going for a beach vacation.

Well, from El Paso, Galveston adds an extra 5 hours driving if your final destination is Corpus... same as South Padre actually!
The beaches are considered better in Texas the further south you go. There may be other benefits to being in Galveston, since it's an actual city, but for beaches alone I would rather visit the ones in the Corpus area or go down to South Padre.

Great tip, I guess we'll make Corpus our 'beach destination' a leave Galveston for touristic purposes only. Thank you
