Orange, Texas Professional Review and Guide
"East of Beaumont and the last gasp of Texas before you find yourself in Louisiana, Orange has some interesting places to visit. Anyone who thinks chili is the definitive Texas dish hasn’t been in Orange for the International Gumbo Cook-off on the first weekend in May.
More than 20,000 folks mob this annual event, proving that the Cajun heritage thrives in this part of the state. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Houston. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
