The Fun Never Stops at Kemah Boardwalk

Located 20 minutes from Lago Mar, Kemah Boardwalk lives up to its tagline, “The fun never stops.” The waterfront entertainment complex features something for everyone, including rides, entertainment, restaurants, shops and more. Take a look at all the things you can do:

Special Events

In addition to regular attractions, the Boardwalk hosts family-friendly concert series, festivals, shows and holiday events. This month, couples can enjoy the Seaside Sweethearts Valentine’s Day event, Feb. 11-14. Dine at any Boardwalk restaurant and receive a table overlooking the plaza, champagne on ice, chocolate-covered strawberries, a long-stem rose and a free train ride for two. On Saturday, Feb. 19, bring the family out for an all-day Mardi Gras celebration featuring live music, children’s crafts and the annual Yachty Gras Boat Parade at 7 p.m.

Rides and Amusements

What would a Boardwalk be without thrilling rides and midway games? Choose one or all of the 16 available rides, including the Pharaoh’s Fury swing ride, Drop Zone free-fall ride and Flare looping roller coaster. Most ride tickets are $5 each but you can purchase Weekend Adventure and All-Day Ride passes. A playground is available for children as is a dancing water fountain.


From casual restaurants to the exquisite Aquarium, the Boardwalk has it all. Throw on a bib and get cracking at Joe’s Crab Shack. Enjoy panoramic water views as you dine on fresh seafood or succulent steak at Landry’s Seafood House. Top off your meal with ice cream at Sweet Scoops.


Pick up a few treasures while you visit. Create a furry friend at the Build-A-Bear workshop. Outfit your family in beach apparel at Kemah Outfitters. The Candy Box offers everything chocolatey, gooey, crunchy and delicious.
