Imagine a getaway for the entire family right there on the coast! Where you can ride amusement rides, shop for the perfect souvenir, or enjoy a leisurely meal, all while enjoying the the beautiful water backdrop.

That is the very essence of the Kemah Boardwalk, Houston’s only amusement park boardwalk.

The Kemah Boardwalk provides activities for the whole family. Located only 20 miles from downtown Houston, the Kemah Boardwalk has something for everyone. It’s not a place where you leave bored. Children can explore marina wild life in the Stingray Bay. Thrillseekers can ride fast on the Boardwalk Bullet, Houston’s only year-round roller coaster. Families can get wet on the Boardwalk Beast, a very fast speedboat thrill ride. And kids and adults alike can have thrills on any one of Kemah’s dozen amusement rides, dine in any one of the several waterfront restaurants, shop in any of the many retail stores, and enjoy festivals and seaside shows every day.

Not just a place for families, Kemah Boardwalk also boasts the comfortable Kemah Boardwalk Inn, which could be a perfect get-a-way for couples. The boardwalk itself is a nice place to walk, and the sea breeze coming from the gulf creates the same atmosphere one would expect from an ocean-coast location. Probably one of the most interesting things about the Kemah Boardwalk is that it gets themed for each holiday. On the Fourth of July, fireworks displays are shown over the water. For Halloween, it is transformed into a ghostly boardwalk, complete with haunted house. For Christmas, it’s a turned into a Yuletide wonderland.

At the Kemah Boardwalk, there is always something going on.
