This is the historic entertainment spot in Galveston for families the Pleasure Pier amusement park. The Pleasure Pier was placed on this pier which had been the structure for the Flagship Hotel which had to be torn down after it was damaged from Ike in so it was an excellent choice for such a fun pier amusement park and it attracks many tourist. This was not the first time the Actually the Pleasure Pier was in this spot before, as it was here from 1943 to 1961 when Hurricane Carla destroyed the amusement park.  Then in 1965 the Flagship hotel was put on the spot till it was destroyed in 2008 by Hurricane Ike and now the Pleasure Pier is back.  It is a great place to bring the kids year round. We were surprised with the number of people there on such a cold day but hey when your a kid you don't notice the cold when your having fun.
