To Our Community,

A love letter by the Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau

Did you know that triangles are the strongest shape? The name the Golden Triangle isn’t a fluke. It may have come from oil, but we’re rich in resources far beyond money. We’re rich in history. Nature. Culture. Community. People. You.

Be proud of where we live, where we come from, and what we’ve accomplished. Not just now, but the countless times we’ve been tested and overcome. It’s time to dig deep and remember that restless, relentless spirit.

Come Together

Tourism brings people together through food, traditions and family. It grows networks, expands horizons and instills a sense of pride for where we live and work. 

Become a local expert. Explore our backyard. Be grateful for what’s here right now. Take advantage of the programs and resources you didn’t know were available to you. 

Be Boastful:
•    We have over 50 museums and attractions from historic homes to entertainment venues. Seven are completely free, and even more are less than $5. 
•    There are over 200 area restaurants, most of which are locally owned. You could literally eat your way around the world from Asia to Italy.
•    We have a Nature Trail, Crawfish Trail, Beer Trail, Black Gold Trail, and Faith Trail full of sights and bites to enjoy.
•    Birding is becoming one of the area’s fastest-growing hobbies. Thanks to our location on two major flyways, you can see over 250 species annually. We’re part of 28 Great Texas Coastal Birding Trails. 
•    Cattail Marsh, the converted wastewater treatment facility turned wildlife refuge, has free yoga every Saturday along with a host of other workshops and activities.
•    The Birdie Passport is a fun, free program that provides stuffed birdies to anyone who collects 10+ stamps from area attractions.
•    The city supports local artists and regularly invests in area beautification projects. There are currently 40 murals and over 70 painted electrical boxes.
•    We’re constantly adding new events and entertainment. We have a flagship festival almost every month of the year from Mardi Gras to Main Street Market.

Rise Up

Visitor spending impacts you in ways you don’t even know — it keeps your property taxes low. It employs thousands of people. It generates millions of dollars in revenue for the city. It keeps your favorite restaurant’s doors open. And most of all, it keeps us connected. 

By advocating for your city, you’re advocating for all of us.

Ways you can help: 
•    Share photos, videos, stories about our area.
•    Support your local restaurant, bar, or boutique with an online order.
•    Be an ambassador.
•    Be Beaumont proud. Not just now, but always.


Birding is in full swing and we want you to take advantage of it! Visit Cattail Marsh, the Big Thicket National Preserve, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and more! Get outdoors and see the hundreds of migratory birds that make Beaumont their home for the season. 


Beaumont, Texas is known for its Cajun-influenced cuisine but not count out the many other delectable eateries in the area. From Asian-inspired crawfish to barbecue and everything in between, Beaumont is a melting pot of flavors waiting for you to enjoy! When you go out to eat in Beaumont and sampling your favorite meals, we encourage you to use #eatbmt at your local restaurants to share with us!

Museums and Attractions

Beaumont's oil boom in 1901, changed the city dramatically. Going from a town of under 10,000 people to 40,000 overnight, Spindletop put Beaumont and the United States on the map and a world leader as a petroleum-producing nation. With that, brought a multitude of people with all different backgrounds, influencing the architecture and history we have today. Explore the downtown architecture and visit the numerous museums and attractions that Beaumont has to offer.
