  • It was a perfect place for a short trip with young children, a lot of fun. We stayed at the Broadwalk Inn and enjoyed our stay there. 
  • Boardwalk is a pier, amusement park, games and reetaurantes. It's a great ride that can culminate with a good lunch. Don't stay away from Houston but crowded these days (weekends) it's hard to find parking.

  • We stopped here after visiting the Houston Space Center . Our kids had a blast. The workers weren't rude, they just weren't pleasant. I talked to a few about questions and they answered my questions, ...  more »

  • The vibe here is so good! Lots of rides for kids and adults too. Such a cute design. And I love the little train that passes through random spots (and has full functioning cross walks). And, the food was great! Make sure to go feed the catfish too. They are so cute!
  • This place is easy parking. This is a nice place to take a walk with the family.Dont forget your strollers. They sell alcoholic beverages which is nice but also expensive. $9 beer. I guess it's because they dont want you getting too tipsy. Dont buy a pass scope the place out first and then decide what you'll pay for you will save yourself money.
  • Great place to spend a day, evening, weekend or even week. Hotel on site and other lodging within walking distance. Excellent choices for dining in area to fit all budgets, amusement park for kids of all ages and multiple bar choices on pier as well.
  • A, if not 100%, 98% Landry's exclusive location, you have Saltgrass, Buba Gump Shrimp Co. and other Landry's staples including a buffet. It's fun to walk the boardwalk, you have some nice views of the sea, but don't be fooled by the carnival feeling, things are over priced and you can lose a pretty penny eating and drinking here.
  • Fun environment that offers something for everyone. They had a live band as well. But if your looking for a good dining experience DO NOT go to Bubba Gumps. It was HORRIBLE! We were there for my Dads bday. Waited 2 hours to sit together after they told us it was an hour an a half wait. We were then seated at 2 different tables (16 people). The manager proceeded to tell me to expect 2 tables for a large group even when other groups the same. Size were together. She was rude and unhelpful.
