For many Houston Senior Entertainment seekers, finding great day trip itineraries help pave the road to fun.
Today we look at an easy Houston senior day trip destination – Beaumont Tx.
This is a great time to visit The Golden Triangle region. The Fire Museum of Texas, located in downtown Beaumont, is hosting “9/11 A Timeline” on loan from the New York State Museum.
The exhibit brings the events of 9/11 into sharp focus for viewers – you can see how the events of that memorable day unfolded, giving a unique perspective.
- The Edison Museum. The museum chronicles the life, genius, and inventions of Thomas Alva Edison, America’s Inventor. Even better, the popular museum is just a few minutes walk from The Fire Museum of Texas
- The Spindletop Museum. Step back into town to the beginning of Texas’ role as an energy power. The museum brings to life the oil boomtown with a bar, post office, printing press, and even a working gusher (spews water – check Spindletop.org for times).
- Enjoy one of Beaumont’s best lunches at Bando’s. Bando’s has a wonderfully diverse menu, and each item is prepared from scratch. Try Southeast Texas foodie favorites like the Greek Salad, fish tacos, or a healthy and sustaining Bando’s quiche. Houston Senior Entertainment Guide Tip: Bando’s also has a wonderful gift shop where you can find Godiva, jewelry, leather goods, handbags and accessories, boutique clothing, and Christian gifts including a large assortment of Catholic art, jewelry, home décor, and literature.
- Have a homemade ice cream at Suga’s Deep South Cuisine. Suga’s is another great Southeast Texas foodie destination – Southern takes on your favorite dishes and a wonderful ambiance. Are you spending the night in The Golden Triangle? Don’t miss live jazz Friday, Saturdays, and during Suga’s Beaumont jazz brunch on Sunday.
Houston Senior Day Trips can be a great way to have fun and enjoy something new. The best include a lot of fun with a little occasion.
Beaumont is a popular Houston senior travel destination for its vibrant Texas museum district (many Beaumont museums offer FREE admission), great local restaurants, and great value.
