Beaumont is the perfect city for anyone who is looking for a quiet area! We have few, but amazing attractions: Lamar University offers a wide variety of summer camps for all ages! Few do pay the fee for economically disadvantaged students, so it is a plus for low income families; other camps are free. The Children's Museum also holds various summer activities and events. The Art Museum of Southeast Texas also holds various creative events for kids to make wacky crafts! The art museum also offers summer camps for children! The best attraction for young people would be the Butch Stadium, where various high schools play football! As for our school district, Beaumont Independent School District, we have many teachers who truly care for the education of the students! We have many of the smartest students represented at graduation every year! Our city has an average population, so crowding is no issue. Beaumont continues to grow as the population has greatly increased throughout the years!

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.
Beaumont, Texas is a urban town settled in the south east portion of the state; near the boarder of Louisiana. I have spent almost my entire life in this town. Leaving Beaumont next year will be one of the hardest things I will ever do. The citizens of Beaumont and all of the towns little quirks make it the beautiful area it is. In downtown Beaumont there is one of the largest fire hydrants in the United States, as well as beautiful historical architecture. Also downtown is the art museum as well as the museum of energy and the children's museum. Downtown Beaumont alone has more than some of the surrounding towns. Beaumont is also the sight where the South Texas State Fair is held every year. People from all over south Texas travel to our town to participate in the festivities. There is so much more to Beaumont than just these things; I would suggest taking a trip down here to see it all for yourself.
