Great weekend getaway!

Above average restaurants with amusement park and a variety of shops. We enjoyed outdoor dining when the weather was nice and watching the boats.

We are from out of town visiting family for the holiday, spent the day here Friday. Had a lot of fun, rides for the kids and adults, face painting, carnival games. Enough to keep you busy all day! Boardwalk has lots of shops too!

We had all-day ride passes through cityPASS and definitely got our money's worth... 2 adults and two kids, 5 and 7. There were rides there for all ages... for example, right next to a big tower drop for adults was a kid-sized one that my kids went on over and over again. The ride attendants could've tried hiding their boredom... More

The Boardwalk is a very cute, clean little amusement park with rides, games, shops, and restaurants. It's nothing big, but it is a nice place for a short visit. My husband and I made a stop here when we went to Houston to visit family. We mainly just walk around and people watch and have dinner. it is a very... More

Tour boats also leave from the the Kemah boardwalk for those wanting to get on the water. Live bands play for free on the weekends. The Yachty gra is not... More

On a mid-November trip to the Webster/Clear Lake area (near Houston), we went to the "Kemah Boardwalk" for a late-lunch (after visiting the Johnson Space Center earlier in the day). The "Kemah Boardwalk" area is free to enter; you just pay for the rides individually (e.g. an old-fashioned wooden roller coaster amongst many other rides). There was plenty of parking... More

OK - This is a biased review. I live in Maryland, so when I think "Boardwalk" - I immediately think Ocean City, MD, or Atlantic City, NJ. Kemah Boardwalk is nothing like this. What you get at Kemah is pretty much a small county fair (rides and games), a couple of restaurants (mostly chains like Bubba Gump and Saltgrass), and... More

This is just average, with nothing extra ordinary. We had nothing to do for one afternoon, and a colleague suggested that we go there. There are some rides and a mini-train, but weathrer was so humid, that it did not turn out to be a good choice, It may be better if you go in winter
