will the pier be open year round? Thinking of going on Carnival Magic next Easter and wonder if the pier will be open at the end of March. I've never been to Galveston so I don't know what the weather is like.

The Galveston Pleasure Pier will be open year around.
The weather in March/April can be comfortable to hot!
This year we had very warm weather early, then it cooled down, now it is inching up in the 80's with higher humidity.
The pier is at 25th and Seawall. There are a number of hotels in the area.
The Galvez is at 21st and Seawall, Country Inn & Suites is at 28th and R-1/2, Holiday Inn Sunspree at 17th and Seawall, The Commodore and Gaido's Motels at 37th and Seawall.
Was at Palm Beach today and my son & I drove back down the seawall to check out the progress at the Pleasure Pier. Looking good!! There were a TON of people working on all of it. Here are a few pics I snapped:
The Galaxy Wheel & the Iron Shark are coming along very nicely:
They had the water going on Pirate's Plunge and were testing a few boats:
