Right on the water, Kemah Boardwalk is the attraction that pulls people of all ages, and from all over, to Kemah Texas. With amusement rides, restaurants, carnival foods, shops, boat watching, and more, there is something for everyone at Kemah Boardwalk.
A few of the multiple attractions on the Kemah Boardwalk include:
The Boardwalk Beast – with shark teeth painted on the outside of the boat, the Boardwalk Beast takes you on a 25 minute ride 4 miles out into the Galveston Bay. You will be blasted with wind (from the speed of the cruise), music, entertainment, and maybe even a splash of water when adventuring the Galveston Bay on the Boardwalk Beast.
The Boardwalk Bullet – Standing at 96 feet tall, the Boardwalk Bullet is one of the few wooden roller coasters in the USA. Within seconds, you are flying down a 92 foot vertical drop only 5 feet away from the edge of Galveston Bay – the Boardwalk Bullet also has 42 crossover tracks, which is more than any other wooden roller coaster!
C.P. Huntington Train – a replica of the 1863 C.P. Huntington Train, this relaxing ride will take you on a tour of the entire boardwalk.
The Aquarium and Stingray Reef – The Aquarium has many exhibits including a rainforest exhibit and Stingray Reef. At Stingray Reef you are able to see, feed and touch the live stingrays in a way that’s safe for both you and them!
Restaurants on the Boardwalk include:
The Aquarium – located in the Aquarium is the Aquarium Eatery where you can get anything from Mahi Mahi to fried calamari. If you’re looking for something that’s a little more grass-fed, the Aquarium has a good American Burger too.
Saltgrass Steakhouse – a chain well-known in Texas, enjoy a signature Saltgrass steak while watching the ships cruise by.
The Flying Dutchman – a seafood house of choice for decades, watch the boats go by while enjoying some of the best fresh seafood creations in Kemah. With choices from Island Redfish to the Dutchman Cobb Salad (Jessie’s favorite dish), The Flying Dutchman is one of our families favorite places to go. Alexie’s favorite part of The Flying Dutchman is the playground connected to it. Sitting outside, watching the boats roll by, and letting the little ones play is the perfect way to end the day.
Bayside Grille – looking for something a little lighter, or even a breakfast to start the day? The Bayside Grille offers soups, sandwiches, beignets, morning coffee, and more!
