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.
Review Beaumont
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!
My overall experience with Beaumont has been great. The neighborhoods and the people in Beaumont are always very friendly. I do not live there but I attend college in Beaumont and do a lot of my shopping and partying there. Beaumont is a safe place to live as I have rarely seen or heard of any violence that occurs here. Traffic is great. I rarely ever get stock in traffic here. I see that there is a lot of open space for family gathers so there is always some kind of activities that goes on that makes me always want to take my friends and family there for outdoor activities. Overall I would recommend anyone to live here that's looking for a safe, friendly, and affordable place to live. It is also a very diverse city so anyone would fit right in no matter what their race or nationality is.
