MOving to Port Arthur/Beaumont area this winter

Anyone have any info that I should know about? Where to live, where NOT to live? My girls are not in school yet so I'm not worried about that right now, just really want somewhere SAFE to live. DH will be working long hours so us girls will be on our own alot.

That's a huge geographic area you're talking about, with lots of variation in neighborhoods.
When is the move? Do you have time to talk to some real estate agents? You can also try to call the local police departments or visitors bureaus to get a better feel...

Re: MOving to Port Arthur/Beaumont area this winter

There aren't too many places in Port Arthur that I would live. There are some nice parts, but there are many that are not.

With that said, if your DH is working in Port Arthur, I would look to live in Port Neches/Groves or Nederland. He'd be looking at a 10-15 min drive at the most. I grew up in PN, but went to Nederland schools. All of the elementary schools in both PNG and Nederland are nice schools. If I were to move back there, I wouldn't put my kids in any of the Port Arthur schools.

If he works in Beaumont, then he'd be looking at a 15-30 min drive from the above areas, just depends what part of Beaumont. I don't have any info regarding the nice areas of Beaumont. Just like Port Arthur, there are areas I would and wouldn't live.

The good news about the PNG/Nederland area is it has grown up so much since I lived there (10 years ago). We used to have a handful of sit down restaurants. Now there are tons, plus they've added tons of other stores (Target, another newer Wal-mart, Lowes, and several others I can't think of at the top of my hand.)

If you have more questions, feel free to PM me.

I think there are some bad areas of Beaumont and Port Arthur (sorry don't know specifics) but Lumberton is nearby Beaumont and I think it is nice.
