Beaumont Reviews

All Categories
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 is located on the south eastern part of Texas near the Louisiana border. The city is surrounded by green farm areas, oil refineries, paper mills, rice factories, and a port, Port Author. Lamar University is the highlight of the town. Their programs are well known nationwide. The town offers a variety of local and commercial businesses and restaurants. The demographic is mixed of lower socioeconomic individuals in less taken care of neighborhoods and some higher-wealthy neighborhoods as well. Overall the people are friendly. There isn't much of a nightlife, spare a few bars, but Houston is about an hour and a half away which offers much more. The biggest thing that could change about the town is how it smells. Often there is an awful odor in the air.
I've lived in Beaumont my whole life and it's a place I'll always call home. There isn't really any outstanding features about Beaumont, Texas , but it's a great place to live if you enjoy family involvement. Public schools aren't of as high of quality as most would hope to believe but you still get the education required to get to a higher level. One good quality of Beaumont is the ever ending supply of job opportunities for student who need jobs part time.Beaumont, Texas has some amazing qualities about it that you'll never forget but I wouldn't say its somewhere you would want to live for a lifetime.
