Growing up in Beaumont, I have been able to see the city grow tremendously. Something that has stayed the same is the beauty of the Botanical Gardens and Loose Conservatory at Tyrrell Park. The 23.5-acre garden offers a multitude of greenery that will leave you mesmerized the moment you drive up, while the conservatory displays 10,000 square feet of unique plants you normally do not see in Texas. The gardens are open year-round, but my favorite time to visit is during the spring and summer. Spring garden strolls are a great activity with friends and family.
I would have to say that the fall and winter are my favorite times of the year in Beaumont. The season brings football games, festivals and cool weather, which are all welcome in my mind. All of the activities that take place in the spring and summer can still be enjoyed with a cool breeze along with it. In the fall, the city hosts the Beaumont Craft Beer Fest, which takes place in Downtown Beaumont. The event has become a popular attraction to Beaumont residents and surrounding cities.
Downtown is the place to be. The architecture and history offer so much to visitors and residents alike. The museums are exceptional and the Jefferson and Julie Rogers Theatre are unlike any other. The talent that comes through Beaumont whether it be singers or Broadway musicals, is something to cherish.
Honey B Ham, hands down, is my number one lunch spot. When I was away for college and would come in for breaks, I had to get a sandwich and cookie at least once while I was home. Living 10 hours away, I had never appreciated seafood more. Floyds filled that void and is a stop that everyone needs to make. When in season, the raw oysters are amazing, the fried alligator with gravy is a must have and the seafood gumbo is a winner. Both restaurants are a part of my childhood and places that I continue to enjoy.
