This museum is located right next to few of the best restaurants in town, so if you are going to eat there you might as well make a pit stop at the Texas Surf Museum. If features photos and artifacts of the local surf culture.

You would never guess that there is a museum dedicated to surfers in Texas but here it is! Lots of old boards, news clippings, posters, photos, films, and memorabilia. The gift shop has some cool tshirts and old posters as well.
