Part 1 of Seri & Abi’s Spring Break adventure started on the Kemah Boardwalk and man did that set the tone for the whole weekend! Unlimited rides on these awesome carnival rides really made the 4-hour trek to Kemah totally worth it!
Thankfully, it was only about 30 minutes from our Houston hotel! Once you arrive keep your eyes peeled for a spot to park. Although you may walk a little further, there are so many cute things to look at, you’ll be there before you know it!
Although the lines were semi-long, Lili and I have cracked the code: 1 of us stands in a line while the other takes the girls on a shorter ride, it really does make for a much more enjoyable time for these excited girls!
They rode the Rockin’ Rocket, Aviator, Double-Decker Carousel, Jungle-Bounce, Hypno-Spin, & Wonder-Wheel, some more than once! Although there are a few exclusions, at approx. $4.50/ride, we definitely got our money’s worth out of the $24 wristband.
Amusement rides aren’t even close to the only attraction on the boardwalk. Just around the corner from the Hypno-Spin is the walkway along the ocean where you can find a cool breeze and lots of Seagulls. This is also a great spot for pictures with the amusement scene in the background.
The boardwalk is also filled with restaurants, shops, bubble guns, an Aquarium, lodging and more! We made our way to this amazing cove right before the Aquarium that houses a spray pad and live music! We had ice cream, the girls got wet, and then we made our way back to the car.
We could have explored this place all day long, so we recommend giving yourself at least 4-5 hours to enjoy the boardwalk and if you plan to visit the Aquarium, split your visit into two days or plan an all-day affair.
THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Walking shoes! (You will do a lot of walking & standing)
- Water bottles ($4 each at the carnival stand)
- Spare clothes or swimsuit for water pad
- A partner to switch off standing in lines with
All our love,
