Straddling borders but not bound by state lines, Beaumont is big Texas fun with Cajun flair. Embodying the best of the Lone Star State and Louisiana, swing on through and get ready to laissez la bon temps rouler, y’all.

If you can’t wait to taste the bayou, follow the Cajun Trail and earn prizes for feasting on our native cuisine. Tia Juanita’s has New Orleans-style drinks, Sweet Basil offers delightful Viet-cajun fusion, while Crazy Cajun is our unofficial crawfish headquarters.

From the beaches to the bayous and the woods to the wetlands, Beaumont is geographically diverse, with a variety of landscapes to explore. Walk the boardwalks at Cattail Marsh, feel the Gulf breeze at Sea Rim State Park, and hike or paddle the Big Thicket National Preserve trails.

Go back in time at Spindletop, the site where black gold was first discovered, changing the Texas economy forever, or explore our downtown, all listed on the National Register of Historic Places by bike. Hold gators at Gator Country or snap a photo at one of our many colorful murals.

Beaumont, it’s the best of both worlds.
