My wife and I are considering a relocation to Texas. We would like to live halfway between Houston and Beaumont (Lamar University). That way we do not have to drive more than one hour to either city. That's why we do not want to live in Beaumont.

Can you suggest nice affordable towns to live halfway between Houston and Beaumont off I-10? We plan to rent since we are only staying in Texas temporarily.

Vidor is not between Houston and Beaumont. Today's Vidor is no picnic, but it is actually safer than a lot of Beaumont and Port Arthur, even if you are a minority.

Winnie, maybe, but only if you really like country living. Mont Belvieu is a popular choice for people who want to be near Houston but commute to refineries in Port Arthur or Beaumont. Maybe Dayton if you are considering the NE side of Houston.

I don't think that area is known for "nice towns."

Mont Belvieu, Cove, or Beach City. For the most part, Beach City isn't what most people consider "affordable."
