The Texas Gulf Coast has its share of hotels, motels and condominiums, and guests will have no trouble finding one. However, if the guest is looking for something a little different, where they can be pampered, relax and to enjoy the Texas Gulf Coast, where privacy is important, or even enjoy a little romance with someone special, then a Bed and Breakfast is the answer.
Several towns on the Texas Gulf Coast have Bed and Breakfast Establishments.
