We love the boardwalk! Whether we are just walking around all of the shops and attractions, riding rides, or sitting at Bubba's watching the sail boats go by, we always have a great time! The attractions are a little pricey, but walking the boardwalk is free. If there's one ride not to miss, it's the wooden roller coaster! You can't... More

I had my b'day party in Kemah boardwalk. It was one of the best houston attraction. The rides are cheap as well as very good. Boardwalk bullet is my favorite ride and my family thoroughly enjoyed the Kemah Tower ride. Restaurants are very nice and reasonably priced. Mostly open until late night. Aquarium is not very great but is kind... More

Great place to take the kids. A little more expensive than I thought. Didn't like the fact that you have to pay for parking when everything is so expensive. Nice and clean with a lot of rides for the children. The food/restaurants are also a bit on the expensive side.

Kemah Bay Boardwalk is a family fun destination about an hour and a half outside of Galveston. It’s filled with, of course, a really nice boardwalk area, rides, wide choices of restaurants, carnival games and food vendors, people drawing caricatures, and even a small aquarium called Stingray Reef, where you can pet stingrays! http://griswolddad.com

My husband and I took our 4 and 6 year olds and my Dad here for Valentine's Day. The kids had a lot of fun with the rides, but were limited in what they could do. Most of the rides would be for a little bit older children. They could ride the merry-go-round, ferris wheel, glass tower and the train...probably... More

Wow ~ good food, fun, rides, games, music, shopping and more. Stroll the boardwalk and feed the ducks, sip a Margarita, listen to weekend music.... Dine inside or out and watch the boaters sail or motor by...... Situated beautifully on the corner of the channel from Clear Lake and Galveston Bay. We boaters love it when you wave to us... More

Yep, its expensive if your going to take the kids and eat at one of the resturants. The food quality is average for what you pay for. There are some other fine resturants in the Kemah area that are less expensive and better quality.
