Beaumont's semi-tropical climate draws residents and visitors year-round for birding, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, camping, and other outdoor recreation. Because Beaumont is a "hub" city, you can plan to arrive via highway, air, rail, or even water.

Beaumont has all forms of recreational activity - from golf on one of the area courses, to picnics at one of our 35 parks, from birding to canoeing and from hunting to fresh and saltwater fishing.

These attractions include everything from the world class Texas Energy Museum to the small, unique museums for which the city is known.

There's river rides, swamp tours, canoe expeditions and camping - even horse racing and casino gaming in nearby Louisiana.
