Usually, we go to Beaumont to meet my daughter there to drop off or pick up my youngest granddaughter or we my go out to eat or something. Occasionally, we will do our Christmas shopping there. I've never had my trailer there in Beaumont, though. Just short day trips is all.
If you want, the next time I go there, though, I can swing in and take a look-see. I stop in at that HD at times, so it won't be much trouble. I just never know when will be the next time I'll be there since that is not our normal grandkid "hand off" place.
For that size of town, it has a lot going for it. I call it a small big town. By that, it has the feel of a larger city, but is really not that big. There are several historical places to go and the downtown district is interesting with a lot of cool architecture. The town's claim to fame, so to speak, is Spindletop where the oil discovery was prominent in our energy history. There is a Spindletop village reconstructed near Lamar University. If you like pine trees, the Big Thicket part of east Texas is just a short car ride away.
So, I'm not sure how long you were thinking of staying there, but it would be interesting for a little while.
