We went for a day trip from Galveston and enjoyed the attractions and the food. My granddaughter enjoyed feeding the fishes and watching the feeding of the string rays.

It was ridiculously hot, but we still had a great time. Due to the short lines, we were able to ride the 10 or so rides multiple times. The folks operating the rides have zero personality and move in slow motion at all times, so...More

Fun for everyone! We joined another couple for the weekend and started at the beach and finished our time at the boardwalk. Parking garage made the area very acceptable and there are lots of places and eatery's to stay cool. Good quick trip!

Didn't have to pay an admission price. You can buy a ticket for all the rides or just the ones you want to ride. Nice gift shops, great rides. Many excellent restaurants. Went the first of June and some things not open yet.

Great little park. Well laid out with plenty of simple rides. If you'll be here for more than 2 hours, it's better to get the day pass though. $4-6 per ride otherwise Fun day trip though

The Kemah boardwalk is a fun place to visit with or without kids. It's got rides, carnival games, street performances (like people juggling fire sticks), carnival foods, restaurants, a playground, a Splashpad and live music events. The games and rides are located closer to the...More

You can, but with all the wonderful restaurants there I wouldn't want to.
We are 4 seniors and would be coming from the Space Center for a late lunch on Thurs March 23.Are there some quiet non chain restaurants open? We would also like to see some pretty views and interesting shops. Thanks.
