Galveston beaches in February?

My husband and I are considering driving from Chicago to Galveston, TX next month for a few-days-on-the-beach-getaway. I'm researching a little but found a few beaches aren't even open at that time of year. Too cold/wrong season? Is this a bad plan? Do you have a better one?

We do NOT want to fly anywhere. Driving is part of the adventure for us, and flying stinks. We're not able to stay anywhere terribly expensive - thinking a cheapo hotel near a beach. Is Texas a bad idea for February? Would it be smarter to head to Florida or somewhere like that? We have little experience in the southern states so any advice or recommendations for a sunny trip would be welcome, thanks!
