Great place for smaller kids (3-9)

Rides are very well suited for younger children. The wooden roller coaster is surprisingly good. There are a number of restaurants in the area that you will enjoy.

Very simple rides and NON REFUNDABLE TICKETS. No information on signs and posts and no information when you are purchasing the tickets that they are non-refundable. In general, overpriced entertainment with sub-par food. You are better eating in one of the small restaurants around the area and they just taking a walk on boardwalk.

Beautiful day for a walk along the water. Hubby had never been so all four of us walked along watching the fishing boats and sail boats float by. Lots of places to sit and rest. Great seating areas outside the restaurants for a drink or lite bites, 25 cents to feed the catfish, pigeons will eat out of your hands... More

We had a great time walking around the boardwalk and taking in the sea air. The weather was cool and it made for a beautiful day outdoors. We visited the amusement park area for a ride or two. Then to have a drink or two.

I can guess many people enjoy this place. Actually, I just stop by before Galveston. I want to stay longer for next short summer vacation.

Stopped in for a quick visit on my way to Galveston. OK, it was the off season so no crowds but it looked like a great place to bring a family. Decent views on the edge of the water, and plenty for the family to take in. It appeared to be neat and well maintained with the usual array of... More

Went to see the space center and needed a place to kill time waiting for Houston freeway traffic to calm down, if that ever happens. Final destination was Austin and it was 4pm. The boardwalk was very nice. Must be the off season so it was not crowded at all. Many restaurants to choose from but we settled on Landry's,... More

We visited the night before we sailed on a Carnival cruise and thoroughly enjoyed walking around the boardwalk. Great restaurants, rides for kids and adults, an aquarium and plenty of carnival side shows. They even have a hotel onsite!

Stopped here for an evening on our way down to Galveston. Was great just to walk around, see all the rides and grab a bite to eat. It was a Saturday night and it was packed. If you want to eat at one of the restaurants, think about making reservations or you might have a long wait ahead of you.... More

Just because this is ranked #1 does NOT make it fun. The rides are minimal and the employees even more so. We had to wait to ride things because they had employees running about four rides each. Two of the rides were broken. We rode the few decent rides two or three times and left. Definitely wouldn't go back, even... More
