One side of the Texas Golden Triangle -- a collection of three cities that have been collectively given the nickname for their booming business sectors -- is Beaumont, which was a major part in the Texas oil boom of 1901. Today, however, Beaumont is known for its unique treasures within the city limits, and for its outdoor opportunities on the county outskirts.
In a prime location in Southeast Texas surrounded by sandy beaches, lush forests, and wetlands, Beaumont is the perfect place for outdoor recreation. Big Thicket National Preserve boasts a number of walking and biking trails that wind through over 108,000 acres of land, while fishing and boating are popular along the Neches River, and kayaking is a fun pastime on the Village Creek Texas State Paddling Trail. Visitors coming to Beaumont for birdwatching will find a variety of birds in the Cattail Marsh Scenic Wetlands, which also offers horseback riding, jogging, and biking. For those who feel adventurous, Gator Country is the place to be; it offers visitors the chance to hold live alligators and to witness the massive alligator named Big Tex, who measures in at an impressive 14-feet long. Gator Country also provides lessons on alligator safety, demonstrations, feeding gators, and interactions with snakes, lizards, and other reptiles. The Beaumont Botanical Gardens, which runs off of generous donations, is home to an indoor conservatory, rushing waterfalls, and stoic stone pillars that thrill nature lovers and stand as excellent photo opportunities.
Beaumont takes pride in offering spacious, modern vacation rentals that are both affordable and comfortable. Many of the available rentals offer all the amenities that a regular, everyday home would have including internet, full kitchens, and ample closet space. There are, however, more compact rentals that are ideal for short stays or visitors who find comfort in a minimalist approach to life.
Beaumont is hot all year round, but for the warmest weather visitors should visit during the summer months. Visit during the spring and fall for cooler temperatures and fewer tourists.
When it comes to family affairs, Colorado Canyon is Beaumont’s most popular attraction. The amusement park features scenic miniature golf courses that make use of waterfalls and streams, arcade and video games, gem panning, snacks and food vendors, and laser tag. Parkdale Mall offers a variety of stores for every member of the family, some of the most beloved being Aeropostale, Build A Bear Workshop, ULTA, and H&M. The large mall also features a food court with a number of dining options. The Beaumont Children's Museum is another noteworthy family-friendly Beaumont venue.
