Welcome to Beaumont & Golden Triangle

When oil gushed skyward from a site called Spindletop in 1901, it set the stage for the region's development. Some of the largest petrochemical companies in the world were founded near Port Arthur and Beaumont. The area is not always the world's prettiest, though there's a certain dystopian visual quality that appeals to some.

Spend a day or two exploring the Golden Triangle’s good museums and interesting oil-related sights, plus a few more for nature-lovers and birders.
