Grab that suntan lotion and put on that sexy swimsuit! Beach season has arrived and Galveston is rolling out the red carpet – eh, make that sand and sea – for the thousands of beachgoers headed to the island.
Depending on where you decide to stay, a trip to Galveston can be pricey because many hotels raise their rates on weekends. Consider that the average weekend rate at a full service hotel is over $200 on Friday and Saturday nights.
But savvy visitors have learned a cool cost-saving way to enjoy the island: They stay mid-week, when hotel prices are cheaper, the beaches are less crowded – and attractions like Moody Gardens, Bishop’s Palace, The Bryan Museum and the downtown historic district are in full swing.
In fact, some hotels save you up to 50 percent while staying mid-week. For a list of island hotel rates, click here.
Here’s what Sarah Kinsler, social media manager at the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau, had to say:
Staying mid-week is a great way to visit Galveston while saving a few dollars. Visitors can make a trip during the week for almost half the cost. There is a plethora of actives and attractions that are open during the week, which are much easier to navigate without the weekend crowds. If people are looking for an insider tip, staying mid-week is a great one.

Relying on the expertise of a car servicing company could give you the assurance that your car is in good hands. Gaining benefits and quality car maintenance and repair are also not new in this endeavor. Provided in the following are some benefits of having the services of a car servicing company:
To longer the lifespan of your car, you need to keep your machines clean all the time to ensure its durability. This way, you could steer clear of unwanted rusts in your car as well as chinks in your engine. If the weather is bad such as there's a heavy snow or rain, then you should thoroughly clean your car, but not just during these times, regular cleaning of your automobile is also advised. To always ensure the good condition of your car, it would be better to ask the help of professionals.
In the long run, a well-maintained car will definitely have a high resale value. You can ask a car servicing company such as the Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group to keep detailed and up-to-date maintenance records. By doing this, you'll also get regular reminders that will advise you to perform the required and scheduled tasks on time.
We say budget friendly because a car servicing company can help you avoid any huge problems in your car, and when we say big problems then it involves a lot of expenses on your side. Cars are not perfect machines after all because they might have some faults later on such as defects caused by the weather or constant use. A professional can better identify those problems and can handle any minor problems in advance before they become major ones.
Many car owners entrust their cars to a car servicing company such as the Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group because they have the required technical skills and tools that an ordinary car owner doesn't have. They allow such companies do wheel-balancing, electrical repairs or ignition timing on their cars.
Let a car servicing company take care of your car's maintenance and repair log. By doing this, they could have further value in the coming years.
Car servicing companies such as the Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group encourages customers to concentrate on more productive activities than worrying themselves about the condition of their cars since such companies could better handle all the aspects involved in taking care of automobiles.
Ever thought how restaurants began? Have you realized that the evolution of this type of business affected everyone? And how its growth transformed the industrialization and the economic system of the world?
Back in the days, people especially those who inhabit a place were used to farming and breeding of animals for their food. The birth of town and cities where people engaged in much more specialized activity leads for many to delegate the former home-based task of cooking food to a person or an enterprise that made good money doing so.
The restaurant came into existence merely to save time and also to avoid the strenuous routine of preparing food each and every day. Each restaurant has a unique menu list where they can showcase their signature dishes. Anyone could even order American, Japanese, European and Italian dishes and have it delivered at their doorstep.
Nowadays, many entrepreneurs are entering the restaurant industry causing a variety and sheer abundance of food choices. The love of many for burgers and doughnut has allowed these businesses to become a multi-billion dollar industry. Even the simple beverage like coffee drove the expansion of restaurant chains. The restaurant did not only change the economic texture of civilization but also the lifestyles of people in general. Many people with hectic lifestyles rarely cook at home and settle for take-out foods on working days.
The inescapable growth of fast food chains globally brought one negative effect on people's health. Food prepared by these establishments contributes little or no nutritional value to consumer’s health. But with the advancement of the wellness and fitness industry, many people nowadays choose healthy food options thus making restaurant owners to incorporate healthy food choices into their menu. This shows that the restaurant industry will continue to change and accommodate consumers demand.
