Beautiful rose garden at Beaumont Botanical Gardens in Texas

Beaumont is a small Texas city located just 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and an hour from Houston. The city is most known for its’ unique roadside attractions which include a 135 foot tall alligator in front of Gator Country Adventure Park, a 24 foot Dalmatian spotted hydrant in front of the Fire Museum of Texas, and a Lucas Gusher Replica at Spindletop Glady’s City Museum.

Other must-dos include a visit to the Louisiana casinos (Isle of Capri and L’auberge du Lac are both within a quick drive), hiking and biking at Big Thicket National Preserve, live interactions with alligators at Gator County Adventure Park, and strolling around the beautiful Beaumont Botanical Gardens.

Beaumont Botanical Gardens – a hidden gem

Beaumont Botanical Gardens is a beautiful 23 acre garden located inside Tyrell Park. A paved pathway takes you through the beautiful gardens. Spring is a great time to visit as the weather is not quite too hot and humid yet. If you find yourself passing through Beaumont on your next road trip, be sure to take a nice relaxing break at Beaumont Botanical Gardens. This peaceful garden features a rose garden, many different plant species, relaxing benches, and a small pond and waterfall.

Where to dine

Sertino’s is a great little cafe which serves artisan coffee. I recommend stopping by for a delicious cup of joe and pastry or snack prior to your visit to the garden. The setting is cozy and relaxed, a perfect compliment to a morning strolling around a tranquil garden. Try the Voodoo, a specialty drink consisting of espresso and dark brewed coffee. It’s super strong and will definitely give you a kick!
