Savor summer at these family-friendly ocean-side attractions from Maine to California.

Kemah Boardwalk, Kemah, TX

11 of 12

Designed to capture the energy and vibe of a traditional carnival, this half-mile-long family-oriented boardwalk amusement park (opened in 1998) has a wooden roller coaster; a 65-foot Ferris wheel; a carousel; and a reproduction of an 1863 Central Pacific train. Throw in African elephant and lowland gorilla animatronics in a rainforest exhibit, a stingray petting tank, a 140-passenger open-decked speedboat ride, and an aquarium-themed restaurant, and you have an afternoon’s worth of entertainment.

Don’t Miss: Cooling off in the Dancing Fountains—75 ground-level water jets that shoot water 10–12 feet up into the air.
