Today, Kemah has a bustling tourist, shipping and commercial fishing economy because of its proximity to Houston and the Houston ship channel. The Kemah Boardwalk, owned by Landry’s Restaurants, was developed in the late 90s. Now it attracts visitors coming to enjoy the restaurants, carnival rides, boat rides and shops.
