Fun In Kemah


A few weekends ago, we took Aubrey to Kemah, Texas with my in-laws. As fun as the Landry's restaurants and the Boardwalk can be, I wanted to share a few ways to enjoy the water, boats, and the boardwalk without spending your life savings.

There is a hidden gem in Seabrook, called Outriggers. It's a restaurant that just might be better than any restaurant on the Boardwalk. It's just was fun. It's on the water. There is live music, you watch boats pass by and boats dock up to it to eat, parking is free, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The Creole Crab Dip and Rum Punch are musts. We also love their fish tacos and fried shrimp. Like I dream about their food at night sometimes. Go there for lunch for sure.

Then head across the way to the Boardwalk. It's $8 to park. Aubrey loves choo choo trains, so we did the train ride, I think it's about $4 or $5 a person. It's kind of relaxing too actually and lasts about 15 minutes. The Boardwalk is so well kept so it's very pretty scenery to ride through.

The other attractions we passed on. It's more fun to just walk around the boardwalk. You can grab a drink and walk it too! Aubrey loved the seagulls and looking at fish.

Another thing on the Boardwalk, if you want to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere without spending a fortune, they have a playground there near the Flying Dutchman. And kids can play and adults can watch them at tables right in front of it. You can grab a drink there and a snack if you'd like and just sit down without being "waited on" and enjoy the water, boats and your child having a great time.

There is also a band playing there where children and adults love to dance to, as well as a water spray fountains the children play in.

For the boardwalk, with the exception of the train ride, we recommend skipping the attractions and just enjoying the scenery, the play ground, the band, and the water fountains and have a great time. Easy peasy without waiting over an hour for a table with a starving toddler and so much fun for everyone. And definitely, eat across the way at Outriggers.

On your way back home, if you enjoy cooking fresh seafood, nothing is better than Rosies! Grab a cooler and some ice and take some back home with you. It's right across from Outriggers.
