Beaumont Things to Do: 23 reviews and 45 photos
We got to the Visitor's Center about one. We went through the exhibits (photos 2, 3, and 5) and then the attendant showed us a 10 minute video tape (the film equipment for the big theatre was destroyed in Rita).
Big Thicket (photo 4) was the first National Preserve, and there are about 7 different locations in the park. It wasn't settled until quite late because it was such an impenetrable area. We talked to the lady who volunteered at the desk (the rangers take off on Monday because they work on weekends) about her experiences in Rita - she lives in Beaumont.
