Can be a quick break. Location is close to the space center. Food is quite expensive, but just stroll along the boardwalk is free.

It was a busy busy place but fun to people watch and walk around. There are many restaurants and things to do in this little area. Parking can be hard to find at the actual boardwalk parking lot but it is a fun place to visit at least once

Lots of midway games and a few rides. All kinds of restaurants and food kiosks. Face painting for the kids. Nice place to walk around.

We went to Kemah because is close to Houston and we made the right decision by stopping here. It is as the name implies, a boardwalk with lots of fun activities, restaurants and it even has a small concert venue where people gather to relax and enjoy the music.

Really enjoyable family environment. There are enough different types of rides to choose from that all ages can have fun at their level. From the merry-go-round all the way up to the roller coaster (definitely a hit with my teenagers). Easy parking @ $7-$8 just steps from everything.

They have a lot of different rides, restaurants, and things to do. We had to pay to park. Bring a lot of money, and prepare for LONG Bathroom lines.

We stopped at Kemah Boardwalk while on spring break in April. It was during the week, so it wasn't super busy. It was very clean & a lot of fun. There are also a lot of restaurant choices as well. My boys enjoyed the arcade area, racing the remote controlled boats, the gift shops & of course all the rides.... More

My family and I visited Kemah Boardwalk as we were looking for something to do that was close to Houston, TX. The Kemah Boardwalk fit that requirement. There was enough to do to keep busy for the day with all of the rides and attractions. There were also private excursions offered by other several companies such as a dinner cruise... More

Beautiful views but not much to do. We paid more for parking than we spent there. In short, it's a handful of carnival rides and a roller coaster. A funnel cake was $7.50. Ridiculous. The view of the water, however, was beautiful.
