The Kemah Boardwalk is one of the best places to go near Houston. Great waterfront restaurants. Carnival and amusement rides. Boat charters for fun and fishing. Dinner cruises, yacht rentals etc. The town has lots of touristy shops, pubs and great entertainment for all ages. They do specialty things like the upcoming Halloween Haunted house. Someplace you should not miss... More

Been here a few times before, but came back after a visit to San Jacinto. I would have just liked to sit and watch the boats for free, but of course with two 12 yrs old you have to do some rides. It would have been cheaper to get the all ride pass but as you are looking at the... More

Let's get the pricey part out of the way. How about $3.75 for a one liter bottle of Coke? Nice place to bring the family with arcades and rides with a plethora of places to eat including a Bubba Gump Shrimp place. There is a Mexican food restaurant and a buffet place as well. The highlight of our trip was... More

We didn't ride any rides but we had a great time walking around. There is lots going on and lots to see. It's kind of cheesy and touristy but was fun none the less. Around the boardwalk are some pretty cool places to see too.

This will be a spot to return to! We arrived too late to enjoy the boardwalk they way we wanted to, however, we had a good time and look forward to riding all the rides before they close. There's plenty to do and see. Something for all ages.

My wife and I stayed at South Shore Harbour Resort and we always visit Kemah Boardwalk. I can attest that it has grown over the years and have gotten better. There is a good mixture of kid attractions as well as a good mix of restaurants, shopping and fun activities.

My hubby and I got there early and many places weren't open yet so we walked around. Great views, plenty of places to sit and relax. Then we decided to go on the Beast boat ride. It was a blast! Don't go if you don't want to get wet! Needless to say we had to change after that. Went to... More

Good choice of restaurants and lots of things for both kids and adults to do. Live music on some days. Can get a bit crowded.

Part of the Houston City pass. Choose this instead of the zoo. A fair drive from Houston but once you are there its enjoyable. The kids had so much fun that we stayed there the whole day. Rides and attractions for the whole family. Food is OK.
