Welcome to Beaumont

It's our great pleasure to welcome you to Beaumont, Texas, home to astonishing biodiversity and historical significance. Here, history was made with the first major oil discovery that changed the world forever. Travelers come from long distances to enjoy Southeast Texas' outdoor opportunities including fishing, hunting, birding, paddling and yes, holding live alligators. On the border of Louisiana but thoroughly Texan, Beaumont embraces both brisket and crawfish. Whether you’re visiting us for a week or just a weekend, you will find comfortable and friendly accommodations along with a variety of things to do, shopping and dining options.
