Beaumont…Texas With A Little Something Extra!
The Cajuns call it Lagniappe–meaning a little something extra. And that pretty much describes Beaumont. We are still pure Texas, but at the same time our Bayou roots make us a combination of two colorful cultures. From two stepping to Zydeco, enjoying enchiladas and spicy hot boiled crawfish or checking out museums specializing in everything from art to energy, Beaumont’s definitely got a Texas sized portion of Lagniappe! And we’d love to share it with you.
Beaumont is full of fun places and unique activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past and present. That makes us a prime cultural heritage tourism site, offering unique historic, cultural and natural destinations for families, groups and seasonal travelers.
Dining & Nightlife
One thing you can always count on in this part of the country the food is as delicious as it is unusual. And there is no better place to sample the cuisine than Beaumont. You’ll dig into everything from authentic Mexican to Cajun to steaks to BBQ and quite often a mix of all of them. You must try our Texas barbecue, BBQ crabs, spicy boudain, etouffe, and boiled crawfish.
Bring your appetite for food and for fun, as well.
Beaumont just about has everything from parks to swamp tours and wakeboarding lakes. Camp out, take a hike, follow the birds, take a dip in the lake, or build a sandcastle. Beaumont has it all!
Have you ever two stepped to a Zydeco band? Or moved to the strains of a blues harmonica played by a guy in a cowboy hat? No matter what your taste in music from rock, country, Cajun or a mix of all of them, Beaumont has it waiting for you. Come on out for a little Fais-do-do, pardner.
