Become a Localist.

Have New Experiences. See Familiar Places with Fresh Eyes.

Share Your Love of the City.

You may remember a few months back, we launched a #BeaumontStrong campaign video where we said our greatest resource was you. We were serious. More than a place, people remember interactions. Help show our visitors why we’re “Texas friendly, Bayou fun,” while helping them explore the city like a real local. We’re asking you to see, do and eat Beaumont like a visitor would and share the experience.

The Ask: 

  • Be Our Eyes and Ears on the Ground – Experience our restaurants and attractions like a visitor would. Provide us feedback about what went well, what could be improved, and what you wish you would’ve known. 
  • Share Your Experience – Had an amazing meal? Tried something you had no idea existed in SETX? Let others know so they can do it too!
  • Help Us Change the Narrative - There’s enough negativity in the world – spread positivity and help uplift the community and drown out the noise. 

What’s In It For You:

  • A Fresh Perspective  - The chance to explore your own backyard through a fresh set of eyes.
  • Free Swag – The chance to earn Beaumont branded gear – wear it loud and proud.
  • Invites to exclusive events and “Localist” experiences around town - To show our appreciation and to get to know Beaumont inside and out so you can share all the city has to offer with others.
  • Satisfaction - Knowing you are positively impacting the community and creating real change.
