What do you love about Beaumont?

I love that Beaumont has so many museums and historical treasures plus a variety of cultural and performing arts options -- all within a few minutes. I so appreciate that there is little-to-no traffic in our wonderful city.

What is your favorite activity in Beaumont?

Dancing, of course! But I do love that I can kayak, bicycle, hike, or go to the beaches of the Gulf Coast all within a few miles of the City of Beaumont.

What is your favorite season?

Spring – all of Beaumont's wonderful gardens are in bloom, plus it is boiled crawfish season. The weather is usually mild and warm for most of the year, which allows for many outdoor activities, festivals and fun things to do.

What is your favorite space in Beaumont to host an event?

I like that our local attractions make great partners for special events, particularly in our downtown area, which is home to seven museums & historical theaters. This makes our “Museum Downtown Dine Around” an off-site specialty dining experience that can be coordinated for convention groups; but, The Beaumont Event Centre is one of the prettiest at night. Plus, it has a built in dance floor. Need I say more?!

What is your favorite place to eat in Beaumont?

It is a toss up between two of my favorite local eateries: Katherine & Company and Two Magnolia’s Café (at the Art Museum). I eat lunch at one of these locales at least once a week.
