The city of Beaumont is a great place for young adults starting their journey into college or just beginning a life of their own. Beaumont is located just an hour away from the gorgeous city of Houston, which means taking a trip to the big city is not a problem. Its home to Lamar University and also a couple of other community colleges for higher education purposes. Many new homes and apartment complexes are being built everyday making Beaumont a great place to settle down. Nightlife is amazing! Your welcome to enjoy the many bars, clubs and hubs in downtown Beaumont. If your not up for the crazy night life Beaumont also offers two theaters Hollywood and Tinseltown. The city consists of a mall, a variety of gyms, pool halls and many other activities that one can participate in to enjoy the great city of Beaumont.

I like the local music scenes and the Jefferson Theatre, they both offer great entertainment for nights out and showcase local talents often. Downtown Beaumont offers great accessibility on foot but is not considered safe at all, even more so at night. I do love the area and the neighborhoods, some can be very picturesque, but safety is still very compromised even in those areas. The school, however, is known for being horrible and I hate that it is, so I am very grateful that I live right on the edge of another district and can attend a much better school. All in all, Beaumont isn't the worst place, and there are certainly many attractions for most people, but it can be very dangerous.
I grew up in Beaumont and had a great experience! Since that time, I moved away and have moved back to the area. In that time, the schools have struggled to find reliable administrators and crime has increased some. It would be wonderful to see this city of diversity return to its former glory!
