Touted as the home of the first major oil discovery that changed the world, Beaumont is as beautiful as it is resourceful. This beautiful Texas city provides some of the best outdoor activities in South Texas, including:
- Holding live alligators
- And so much more!
Though Beaumont sits on the border of Louisiana, it’s purely Texan. Visitors to the area will, however, be able to enjoy brisket and crawfish, should they want to.
For travelers looking to reconnect with nature, we recommend taking a stroll through the Beaumont Botanical Gardens. This 23 acre garden is located within the Tyrrell Park, and provides visitors with paved walkways connecting themed gardens. The gardens are home to camellias, rose varieties, bromeliads and other native fauna and flora.
If you’re hoping to spend some time with water, there are plenty of places to see. The Cooks Lake to Scatterman Paddling Trail is a local favorite for canoeing and kayaking. Sam Rayburn Lake is a fisherman’s haven. The lake is home to more than 300 fishing tournaments each year. And, of course, the Gulf of Mexico is just steps away. Here you can paddleboard, hire a tour boat, book a fishing charter, or just relax on the shores of the gulf and soak up the hot, Texan sun.
When you fly into the jet charter airport in Beaumont, you’ll land in 1,180 acres of somewhat sprawling greenspace. There are two runways servicing the airport, which means it can efficiently accommodate aircraft of every size.
