    i know it is early but when i booked my room last week looked like it was starting to fill up, at least where i stayed last year... plus rooms are cheaper if you book now. should be a good time again :newsmile026:

    anyone else going?

    Moody Gardens is the hotel, we stayed their last year. it was the only one we could find on short notice and we thought was expensive about $214. they have a shuttle that goes directly to the strand so that saves a lot of taxi fares (about 25-30$ each way). they have allow us to park our bikes right in front of the hotel plus they have security 24hr watching the bikes. so all in all it works out to be not a bad deal in the long run.
    the cost varies on the view from your room, so this year by booking early we were able to save about $30 per night....
