In addition to the petrochemical industry, Beaumont has developed a busy port on the Neches River that services offshore oil-drilling platforms. At local museums you can learn most everything you ever wanted to know about local oil and gas. Some money from these industries has gone to fund arts and cultural institutions. Life here largely takes place along the interstate. Downtown is pleasant but mostly quiet, apart from a block of upscale bars.
