Attraction of the Week: Beaumont Botanical Gardens
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 things to do include a visit to the Louisiana casinos (Isle of Capri and L’auberge du Lac) are located just a short drive away, 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 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 check them out as the weather isn’t 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.
