Cattail Marsh is an amazing escape. So close to the city geographically, but it's a different world. Cattail is my go-to getaway in Beaumont. The 720-acre marsh, surrounded by trails atop the berms separating the lagoons, is only 10 minutes from the south-end hotels, adjacen...More

It must have been our lucky day... no mosquitos. Lots of different birds. Nice coveted areas to get the kids out of the sun.

New Boardwalk was recently opened so we decided to go check it out. Nice, clean, ample parking, and a well thought handicap/wheelchair accessible access.
