Beaumont is a gem... 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Apr 20, 2019) I read these reviews and others when we first were asked to move to Beaumont and I always said I would write one when we leave. Beaumont, at least for us was wonderful. The cost of living, quality of life and amenities are fantastic in this little gem. I used to say that it ha ...Read More d the weather of Southern California without all the So Cal folks! I would love how it would rain really hard for an hour or two and then the sun would be out for the rest of the day, allowing such a green, lush environment. We lived west of the 1-10 and I would agree with that, or parts of Lumberton. Stay in the 77706 for best resale value. The public schools are not a factor for us, since we homeschool and the opportunities for homeschooling have grown exponentially in SouthEast Texas in the last 4 years. We chose a wonderful university model (part Christian private/part homeschooling) school, Veritas Classical School and that was our community for almost 4 years we were there. The parks, the restaurants, the stores are all ample and just enough for us. 30 minutes away there is a wonderful theatre at the Lutcher. Not to mention the local community theatre does such a great job. The symphony is good and this town is charming. The one thing I appreciated coming from Southern California and having lived in Frisco, Tx prior to Beaumont was there was not the "keeping up with the Jones'" attitude. There are people with wealth and/or means but everyone I met was sweet and down to earth. The churches we attended were fantastic - Praise Church (non-denominational) and a new one getting started, Riverside (Protestant) and the folks in both are super welcoming. If you or your spouse are getting transferred here or if you are looking for a community to raise a family, this is a fantastic town! The only thing that would have made it five stars for me, would have been to have a drop zone there. There used to be before Hurricane Ike and I was bummed on arrival when I found out it closed. Driving all the way to Rosharan, Tx to skydive was a bummer as it was an entire day/night away from the family. Read Less
horrendous and disgusting 1 rating By lizardgal ( Feb 12, 2018) Absolutely do not move/visit/come within 50 miles of southeast texas it's pathetically unclean and dangerous. Upper class people here think they're socialites in nyc, there's trash and roadkill everywhere, and the area as a whole is going very far downhill. Since the hurricane (w ...Read More hich wiped out half of the area) piles and piles of house gutting garbage is still lying around everywhere. It's disgusting. The beach is mud and mosquitos and stinky seaweed. The public education is the worst of the worst. Do not come here!!!! Read Less

Together with its neighboring cities, Port Arthur and Orange, it is part of what is known as the Golden Triangle. It is a very modern and clean city, noted for its oil and shipping industries.

Since the city
...Read More of Beaumont is located on the Gulf Coast, many of Beaumont's attractions and things to do are geared toward the outdoors. There are many golf courses, water parks and zoos. One place of particular interest to me was the twenty-three acre botanical gardens that was open to the public.
