“Just 20 miles from Downtown on Galveston Bay, Kemah is a breezy escape from the city. And its most popular attraction is Kemah Boardwalk, offering a taste of the charming boardwalks of the East Coast. Open daily, it boasts amusement park rides, Gulf Coast eats, live tunes, charming shops, and funky festivals. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel, swing high above the ground on the Aviator, test your fearlessness on the 140-foot Drop Zone or Boardwalk Bullet, and experience the water with a ride on the Boardwalk Beast, a thrilling 25-minute boat ride through Galveston Bay (just don’t expect it to be dry). Or head straight to Galveston’s Historic Pleasure Pier, where you’ll find family-friendly fun on rides like the Iron Shark Rollercoaster, sky-high Texas Star Flyer, and swinging Gulf Glider, plus a 5D theater ride, games from ring toss to hoops, and classic boardwalk eats like fried shrimp, burgers, pizza, cotton candy, and ice cream.”

“This museum has it all – a dinosaur hall, planetarium, IMAX theater, and butterfly exhibit. I’ve always enjoyed the gemstone collection. Parking can be a nightmare since the zoo is close-by. I’d Uber there instead.”

“Nestled among Live Oaks in the heart of Downtown, the eco-friendly Discovery Green park has redefined the city’s urban landscape; and together with the revamped Avenida Houston, it has become a bonafide entertainment district. Escape the sun by strolling down the tree-shaded Brown Foundation Promenade, where you’ll also find seasonal art and annual winter light installations. On Jones Lawn, you’ll find a lineup of festivals, concerts and performances, and charity events. Discovery Green signature Kinder Lake covers over an acre of the park, offering activities like kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, remote-controlled sailboats, and ice-skating, depending on the season. And look out for other special events, including the ICE at Discovery Green outdoor skating park, Flea by Night pop-up flea markets, and community activities like yoga, workshops, movie screenings and more. Nearby, Avenida Houston offers a roster of bars and restaurants, events and concerts, and some pretty cool art, including Soaring in the Clouds, a 67-foot mobile of bird and cloud forms made of perforated stainless steel from artist Ed Wilson.”
