We dropped by on a Tuesday morning and whilst a few of the rides were going, nothing much else was going on! I'd say that the place is a lot more active at night and on the weekends, and if you're driving by it's really nice to check out and the view is lovely.

I went here with friends on a Thursday night to get dinner and look around. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and in all price ranges. It has a nice scenic view of the canal and Bay Area. There was a lot of traffic getting across the bridge to get there but it was worth it.

All the feature of a typical boardwalk, on the water. Rides, junk food, shop and restaurant s. A fun place to stroll and people watch.

Took my grandbabies to ride the train . If you have older children at is cheaper to get the pass for all day. The rides are like 6-7 dollars each. I think the pass is 25-30 dollars. You are right on the water and can see boats. There is a lot of good restaurants there. There are games to play.... More

It had been many years since I had been to the Kemah Boardwalk. Like most of these type places you have expensive everything from food and rides and shopping. Nice it is on the water and a beautiful area. Come with money to spend! It clean and very secure feeling and fun for children.

Weekend with hubby, enjoyed the walk. Parking was busy but still enough areas to park at. Lots of excitement for kids and adults. Restaurants at park are very good. Even if you don't get on rides it's worth to visit to enjoy the views. Take an appetite!

We were here in early May so no crowds, it was windy so lots of wave activity with boats bouncing around. we strolled a bit and checked out the options for dinner. The area is not huge but there are several rides for the kids plus lots of restaurants. One point we liked - saw 2 workers sweeping up every... More

If you want fun, fast rides and thrills galore then you have to get down to Kemah Boardwalk. The roller coaster is a hair raising experience and so much fun!

The Kemah Boardwalk is a great place to visit along Galveston Bay. Try to go during the week if possible. Not crowded and free parking. The weekends can be very crowded. There are rides, games, great views of the water and boats, restaurants, etc. Sometimes they have concerts and fireworks. Fun place to hang out for awhile. There are also... More
