If you bring the kids get ready to drop some dough. But, this is a very clean carnival. Although limited. Refreshments are pricy. Shop, people watch, eat, enjoy the area. Parking used to be free. Now all lots are $6-7. Gonna squeeze that last dollar out of you.

We liked everything , food , entertainment and rides. The Boardwalk is owned by Landry's it was built in 1997 and still has the appearance of being brand new. All the staff everywhere were friendly and well informed.

After spending the whole afternoon walking around the NASA center, this is the best place to continue the dreamy day. Wooden roller coaster, crazy drop zone or just a lovely good-old-days carousel and many more. When you get hungry, try the all you can eat for $15, it's really worth it! Enjoy!

The boardwalk has lots of small amusement rides primarily for teens and kids. The place is super clean and has several restaurants and eclectic shops for the more senior visitor. the visual impact of the whole boardwalk is very pleasing. Even though it was drizzling during our day there we had a great time. Well worth a day or so.... More

Awesome place for family. Equally awesome for date night with Hunny. The sound of music, laughter and the views are just what the doctor ordered. Highly recommended! By myself and my kids.

While we arrived the night before our cruise, we stopped and had a great time walking the boardwalk and eating at this beautiful place with some pretty good carnival type rides. It is really nice and full of fine restaurants.

We visited the Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah, Texas on a beautiful Sunday morning. We had thought about the Galveston boardwalk but heard at our hotel that the Kemah Boardwalk (while not as big) was nicer and more laid back. We were sold. There is an abundance of parking, but most is $7 to park. That’s not bad since you don’t... More
