~ Beaumont, Texas ~
I passed through Beaumont in 1993 with my parents and brother while returning from a family road trip to Colorado. We had spent the previous afternoon and night in Houston and were heading for our next destination, New Orleans. Beaumont is located along Interstate 10 in the southeastern corner of the state. It is a medium-sized with a small skyline of mid-rise office buildings, but it is perhaps better known for its skyline of oil refineries. Oil and other industries are the lifeblood of this region. Beaumont itself seems more akin to the cities of South Louisiana than it does with its Texas sisters.
