Galveston Beach this summer - Help!

This year we decided to stay close to home and go to Galveston beach (TX) the last week of July (looks like 7/28-8/2). I've only been to Galveston to get on a cruise ship and I don't have a clue as what to expect. We chose Galveston for the beach, Moody Gardens, and it's proximity to Space Center Houston.
What should I know before booking this trip to make it a great experience for my family? My wife and I are in our early 30s and we have a 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter.
I've killed some time researching hotels on the beach (the rentals are way out of price range) but is that even necessary since Stewart beach is a drive away? Where should we stay (<$200/night ideally), eat, other attractions, should we bring our own chairs and umbrella, any discount ticket outlets? Thanks!
