Summer Adventure No. 2 – Boardwalk Of Dreams At Kemah
For the past few years, our family considers Kemah Boardwalk as our all year round fun destination. It has a beautiful , calming view of the gulf providing an escape from the hectic city life and an amusement park that provides fun rides and games to both kids and adults alike. My son’s favorite is the train which we had to ride without fail. He gets excited when we enter the old west cowboy tunnel. It also has several waterfront restaurants that offers a variety of international cuisine. My son loves the Aquarium. He would walk around the circular tank following the sharks and stingrays. My wife and I depending on our craving for the day enjoys the seafood at Landry’s, sushi at Red, Mexican tacos and margarita at Cadillac Bar , shrimps and crawfish at Joe’s Crab Shack and today we tried the sirloin steak and grilled mahi-mahi at The Flying Dutchman which were both delicious. For those who like to shop, there’s a lot of specialty shops next to the famous Boardwalk Inn. My 5-year old enjoys exploring the Toy Crossing store and playing with the Thomas the train pieces. There’s even an all year round Christmas store which never fails to bring back nostalgic memories of past Christmases.
The Boardwalk gives a totally different ambiance at night. The light effects are stunning, the breeze cooler and overall it’s just more serene and romantic . Young and old couples alike would sit by the bench facing the sea under an old lamp-post. It’s a prefect place to just talk and bring back memories.
The Boardwalk offers timeless amusement and many dreams . And for as long as my family’s heart yearns for fun, imagination , constant adventures and mouth-watering foods, it will remain as one of our top places to visit regardless of the season. Today, it’s our number two in our top 10 list of Summer fun places to visit in Texas. Through the years, it has been a source of excitement and relaxation for most Texans who love being close to the coastal waters.
