Visiting Beaumont, Texas

Visiting Beaumont, Texas

The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau has a wonderful program called the Official Beaumont Birdies Passport! My grandchildren and I enjoyed going to eight different museums in Beaumont, Texas, getting our passports stamped, and then selecting a plush toy bird typical of the birds of southeast Texas with its own call, name, profile, and favorite local hangout. The museums were all incredibly interesting and fun! We went to the following:

Art Museum of Southeast Texas
Beaumont Children’s Museum
Fire Museum of Texas
Spindletop Gladys City
Energy Museum of Southeast Texas
McFaddin-Ward House
Lamar University Reardon Honors College
Edison Museum

“We are excited to continue growing in Texas by creating an additional 1,000 full-time roles at this new fulfillment center in Katy,” said Akash Chauhan, Amazon’s vice president of North American Operations. “In fact, beyond the more than the thousands of employees who currently work for Amazon in Texas, more than 160,000 authors, sellers and developers in Texas are growing their businesses and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services.”

We are pleased to officially announce that Amazon plans to build their tenth fulfillment center in Texas in the City of Katy. Katy has recently been associated with distinguished companies such as Buc-ee’s, Pepperl+Fuchs, Transwestern, and now Amazon, a Fortune 20 firm that will bring a $160 million project along with 1,000 new jobs to our community. This project was part of the City’s strategic planning for annexation and continued financial strength. We are honored to have such a great company plant their flag in the City of Katy. http://cityofkaty.com/13994-2/
