What is the one thing religious meeting planners probably don’t know about Beaumont?

Did you know that you can hold a gator, hold a meeting, experience worship, and explore our faith trail – all within the city limits of Beaumont, Texas! Where else but in Beaumont will you find an enormous Dalmatian-spotted fire hydrant, see the biggest alligator in Texas, visit a museum dedicated to the first discovery of oil in Texas, and tour several historic church buildings? Our Faith Trail allows religious groups to explore Beaumont's historic places of worship showcasing various architecture styles as well as denominations. Walk a labyrinth as an outdoor prayer meditation activity while on your Faith Trail. You can add parts of this excursion as a walking tour, do as a bus driving tour, or just select one church sanctuary to visit whenever you choose Beaumont as a location for your next spiritual retreat, training, educational conference, or religious meeting.
