Ok everyone! My husband has decided that we are moving to the Beaumont/Port Neches area by spring. I have read and researched but feel it might be easier if I explain my situation and then maybe somebody can steer me in the right direction. First off, we have to move to a rental. We can not afford to buy right now. I will be working in Beaumont and so will my husband so we do not want to drive longer than 20 miles to get there. I have a teenage daughter so I must be near some activities for her but in a very low crime rated area. I have a 10yr old son also. I am not looking for total country nor do I want to live directly in the city. We were thinking of living on a lake. Are there any nice lakes in this area? Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check out Lumberton.

It is a rapidly growing community of about 15,000 just to the north of Beaumont.

Very little crime, quality schools, and a 5 minute drive, interstate style divided highway to Parkdale Mall and the Dowlen area of Beaumont.

It is out of the "city" of Beaumont but it isn't country either. ITs very suburban. I am actually visiting family that has recently moved here and love it. If I were to move to the area I would chose Lumberton.

It is growing quickly and there is a lot of new home construction going on and I believe quite a few quality rental homes to chose from there.

I don't believe there is a lake here (although I saw an apartment complex the other day called Lumberton on the Lake). There is a large creek here (Village Creek) and the Village Creek State Park.

Hi! Do not live in Beaumont and if you do, make sure you get in WestEnd, closer to the mall area. Lumberton is a great little town. Bevil Oaks, Sour Lake, and I think Port Neches and Nederland, but the one I would highly recommend is Lumberton. There aren't any lakes around here...

If you're still looking, there is a lovely place called Highpoint on the N/W side of Beaumont. It's a new private gated subdivision on RFD Road. You would have to get ahold of the builder to check out a floor plan and the lots are zero property lot lines. The reason it's called HighPoint is that it's the highest elevation in Beaumont. Also this side of town is growing at a pretty good pace.

The west end of Beaumont is nice and all those places mentioned like Lumberton are absolute crap. Move to Beaumont proper for goodness sake!
