Texas with a Little Something Extra

Welcome to Beaumont!

Following the sweep of long-leaf pine and cedar, through the lowland plains and fields, gradually down to the lapping Gulf waters and swampy mystery of the bayous, Beaumont offers a blend of unexpected combinations. On the border of Louisiana but thoroughly Texan, Beaumont embraces both brisket and crawfish, a mix of Texas swagger and Cajun rhythm. Where else will you find an enormous spotted fire hydrant a block from an excellent fine art museum? Or the the biggest captive alligator in Texas sharing the same town as a museum about the history of energy?

It's our great pleasure to welcome you to Beaumont, Texas, also home to astonishing biodiversity and historical significance. Visit sites where American history was made, from the first major oil discovery that changed the world forever, to the most one-sided Confederate victory of the Civil War. Travelers come from long distances to enjoy the area's outdoor opportunities including fishing & hunting, camping, hiking & biking, paddling and other water sports. From bird watching and botanical gardens to swamps and gators, you'll find plenty of things to do inside and outdoors. 

For entertainment, you'll find everything from regional festivals & events to symphony concerts, rodeos to ballet productions. And with classic Cajun cuisine, zesty Texas barbecue and authentic Mexican fare, the restaurants are as spicy as the people who live here.
