It was a perfect place for a short trip with young children, a lot of fun. We stayed at the Broadwalk Inn and enjoyed our stay there.

Brought my grandson who was visiting and before he had to return home. The boardwalk was neat and very active but we came primarily for the fireworks. They were scheduled for 10pm but they never started. As we were in line to buy tickets for the train, an employee informed us the fireworks were canceled because of morning rain and... More

What a great spot only about 45 minutes from Houston. Many great restaurants to choose from sitting on the waters edge in the sun with great food and wine. If travelling with children they would thoroughly enjoy the amusement park and side shows

Kemah boardwalk was a great place to visit with family visiting from California! Great rides for the 2 young grandkids and not far from home. The weather was perfect and all the rides and attractions were open. Many great restaurants and went back to one of our favorites, the Aquarium! A great go-to place near the Houston area!

The wooden roller coaster is very fast and scary... Long waiting lines for rides. Carnival food and restaurants.

Nice place for the kids. Parking is free and close and you can buy individual rides or an all day pass. Lots of places to eat, but they are all pricey. A funnel cake is $7.50 as is a hot dog. Not very impressed with the kids running the rides. Be prepared to wait in line as the rides are... More

There are a few rides at a reasonable price. It was $25 for a day pass. There were spiny rides, drops and a roller coaster, and some kiddie rides. There were also a few carnival games and seafood restaurants. We went for the view and it did not disappoint. However, the rides were pretty much all that there was.

This is not the old sleepy fishing village of the '50s-'60s-'70s. Nice job of working with the rising sea levels and sinking land. A little too touristy that looses the local flavor but it does bring in the crowds. Can be very crowded in the weekends. Overpriced.

If you want a relaxing stroll, go to the strand in Galveston! This is a like an amusement park with people and vendors everywhere. Some of the restaurants are good but go at odd times to avoid the crowds. Parking is usually for a fee, I recommend using the parking garage. Young kids would probably like this but adults probably... More
