Kemah boardwalk is quaint fun and very engaging. Lots to do nestled in a cove in the bay. Beautiful boats line the marinas and lots of attractions, stores and restaurants ,by the water to get a great meal,and attractions to keep the kids happily engaged. You will remember Kemah boardwalk as a place of relaxing fun!

Husband and I went to Kemah Boardwalk on a short weekend trip to Houston. Got there at probably 5:30pm on a Friday which happened to be the week school started so it was pretty quiet (for us that was a good thing). It's a pretty small area and most of the options of things to do are restaurants (and most... More

I honestly would not go here for the rides unless you have a Houston City Pass. To pricey otherwise. Not a lot of rides and little shade.

The Kemah Boardwalk is a destination everyone should visit. Amusement park is great for all. Flying Dutchman is my favorite restaurant. Boardwalks Inn is beautiful.

My husband and I were visiting our daughter in Houston and she suggested that we get out of the apartment and visit the Boardwalk while she was working. Great Idea. It was raining when we got there but then cleared off. We ate a wonderful dinner at the Flying Dutchman and then walked the boardwalk and watched people, birds, fish... More

Kemah Boardwalk is also a place I definitely recommend for anyone in or around this area. It also has adult and friendly rides. The ride I definitely recommend is the roller coaster, that one is definitely a blast. The view is nice other than the smell. You can see the boats coming in and leaving. I highly recommend anyone to... More

Spending August in Texas visiting family is not ideal. It's better when you have some place like The Kemah boardwalk to spend time at. We got there around lunchtime and had a pic of restaurants. Next came the roller coaster and all the other rides for the little kids. For the musclemen in the group, they were able to test... More

I rate it average because I had taken a foster child there for the day. We waited on the long line for tickets,although it went by kind of quick. Then we waited on a longer line,about 25 mins for the train ride. When we finally were aboard,the train stopped midway. It broke. They told us to wait until the mechanics... More
