Beaumont...Texas With A Little Something Extra. The Cajuns call it Lagniappe--meaning a little something extra. And that pretty much describes Beaumont. It's still pure Texas, but at the same time its Bayou roots make us a combination of two colourful cultures. From two stepping to Zydeco, enjoying enchiladas and spicy hot boiled crawfish or checking out museums specializing in everything from art to energy, Beaumont's definitely got a Texas sized portion of Lagniappe!
