This is not the best boardwalk in US, but for Houston it will be. I love to take visitors in town to Kemah and haven't get anyone complaint yet :) There is the aquarium... read more

Crowded. Imagine putting Six Flags in a small city block. Lots of drinking and several people smoking. No sign of security or police around. In the 4-5 hours we were there, ambulance showed up twice. Doesnt feel like a family place. Its ok if you like the party scene but for a nice amusement park experience for the family I... More

Had a good time but actually wish we had the kids with us. The biggest down side was the traffic. Lots of things to do but a little expensive.

Enjoyed our Sunday Fun-Day with Our Family. My kids loved the rides, I enjoyed them as well. We really enjoyed the Zip Line, I think the pictures are really pricey but other than enjoyed the rides with my kids. I was craving Turkey legs since we arrived, but really $11.00, I bought it anyways, it was delicious. I think what... More

The Kemah Boardwalk is legendary to those of us whom live in southeast Texas. The boardwalk has beautiful views of the inter-coastal waterway where you can stroll along enjoying the sea breeze. A number of fabulous restaurants call Kemah Boardwalk home and there are a variety of arcade games and vendors offering novel wares. There are several roller coasters and... More

I love to take visitors in town to Kemah and haven't get anyone complaint yet :) There is the aquarium restaurant where you can dine in and see fish which is a nice touch. I've been there many times and tried out most of all the... More

Cons: 1) Food and rides are expensive 2) Photographers on the boardwalk act like paparazzi to everyone 3) Parking is a... More

The thing that struck me the most is that the area is very clean and fresh. The neighborhood around the boardwalk is very cozy and there are several restaurants if you wander a few blocks away. Also, it is free to walk out on the boardwalk, unlike Galveston Pier.
