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

Our party of 8 visited mid August and sat out on the patio. We luckily had great weather and it wasn't too hot. We enjoyed the patio view and being able to hear the live band playing next door. The food was good and the prices good considering the tourist trap Kemah seems to be. Would definitely go back next... More

Love strolling around, seeing activities, boats, people watching. We are retired so did not ride any thing this time, but did in the past.

The Boardwalk is just a special place with great food, lodging, boat rides. All ages will enjoy so many offerings. Spent time at the Cadillac Bar and the Aquarium restaurants. Wonderful food. I stayed at the Holiday inn and it was excellent.

This is nice place to visit even on a gray, rainy day. We enjoyed ourselves on the ferris wheel and train ride. Even had our caricatures done. This place is probably better on a sunny day but I still enjoyed myself.

Kemah is an excellent place to go with your family. There is lots of stuff to do so this could be an all day stay. The kids enjoyed all the roller coaster rides. We bought the all day ride bracelets which is much cheaper than buying tickets guaranteed. There's also fans got can play and win prizes. There's plenty of... More
