Welcome to Beaumont, TX!

Located a short distance from the Louisiana border, Beaumont is almost more of a Cajun city than a Texan one, and the mix of the two cultures can make for a unique experience. After the discovery of the Spindletop gusher in 1901, Beaumont became one of Texas's first oil boomtowns. It has since diversified and expanded to become a thriving industrial center and port. The South Texas State Fair, the second largest in the state, is held here every year and attracts up to 600,000 visitors. The Crockett Street Entertainment District in downtown Beaumont is home to numerous city festivals and has a city block full of restaurants, nightclubs and live music. A large number of museums, covering subjects as diverse as art and pottery, steamboats, firefighting and the works of Thomas Edison, mark Beaumont as a cultural center for eastern Texas.
