Suggested Bike Routes

We’ve highlighted notable architecture, photo spots, where to shop, grab a bite, and cool off. While Beaumont in its entirety is relatively large, the downtown is fairly compact and very walkable or bikeable, with most of the major attractions within just 1.5 miles of each other.
