Greet gators at Gator Country Adventure Park
Beloved and feared, alligators are Texas's most fascinating native creature. Gator Country Adventure Park is home to about 300 along including Big Al, the largest gator in Texas. Meet Big Al, hold a baby alligator and meet a few more new friends at Gator Country Adventure Park.

outdoor activities  
Relax and enjoy a boat ride on the Neches River
Beaumont's downtown cultural district is just a stroll from the banks of the Neches River. Take a two-hour riverboat cruise from downtown Beaumont and see scores of birds and animals that live along the Neches River, part of the Big Thicket National Preserve. Neches River Adventure's open-air pontoon boat, The Cardinal, is an ideal way to take in the beauty of the "last wild river" in East Texas.

It's Texas With A Little Something Extra!
