Use the following links to learn more about the cities of Bay Area Houston.


Welcome to Kemah, TX.

"Kemah" is an Indian word meaning "wind in my face". Come "Breeze into Kemah" a slogan that accurately describes the recreational environment. The city is aptly named because there is a near constant breeze from Galveston Bay. Kemah's name has also been long associated with water and having fun. Today, that is even more true with the spectacular Kemah Boardwalk and Kemah Lighthouse District with shops of every description, fine restaurants and marinas offering just about any kind of water-related activity you can imagine. Kemah is the place to take a break.
