The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) introduced the Beaumont Birdies, a new initiative designed to inform and capture the interest of a broader audience in the birding community! The Beaumont Birdies help showcase and increase awareness of both area attractions and birding hotspots. Each Beaumont Birdie is named after its favorite local landmark and will serve as spokesbirds to highlight each respected attraction. Visit each location, get a stamp and take home your own Beaumont Birdie by the end of the week.
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!

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.
