about Kemah Boardwalk:
Ride prices vary, generally $3 and up; an all-day pass is $16.99-$18.99.
Joe's Boardwalk Beast is a speedboat that takes passengers on a 25-minute, 40mph "thrill ride" into the Galveston Bay. The ride is both wet and wild (water pistols are encouraged), so dress to get soaked, and bring a towel. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for kids, and advance tickets are available online.
On hot days, families can cool off and splash in the dancing fountain in the main plaza, and also enjoy a playground and midway games.
Several restaurants rim the boardwalk with views of the bay, including Joes's Crab Shack and Aquarium Restaurant, which features a 50,000-gallon indoor aquarium brimming with marine life.
The Boardwalk's plaza hosts several concerts, festivals, and other special events throughout the year.
The Boardwalk Inn is a full-service 52-room hotel. The Inn is nestled in the center of the Kemah Boardwalk and offers guests the feel of an elegant seaside retreat while keeping them right in the middle of the fun. For reservations, call 281.334.9880.
