Port-Arthur is located in southeast Texas "where the land and ocean meet." The Gulf Intracoastal Waterway runs alongside Port Arthur and the city is nestled on the shores of Lake Sabine, with the Gulf of Mexico at the southern tip of the city. Rainbow Bridge across the Neches River connects Port Arthur to Bridge City, Texas. The town of Port Arthur is very diverse with Cajun being the strongest culture. The town's motto is a Cajun phrase "laissez les bon temps rouler," which translates to "let the good times roll." Lake Sabine and the Gulf of Mexico offer miles and miles of beaches and water-related activities like fishing and boating. Other things to do include hiking, biking, sailing, golf and birding. The mild climate makes outdoor activities possible year round. Port Arthur is full of hotels, shops, shows and fine restaurants, many with a Cajun flair. Port Arthurs Museum of the Gulf Coast is recognized as the one of the state's most impressive museums. Many celebrities have come from Port Arthur, including the rap duo UGK, who refer to their hometown in their songs. The town is also host to many special events and festivals throughout the year, including Island Fever, which is billed as the "Mardi Gras of Southeast Texas."

Port Arthur Weather & Climate

The Northern Gulf Coast of Texas, near the Louisiana border, the climate is humid subtropical. This region along the coast is actually located within the Piney Woods Region of eastern Texas. It receives the most rainfall in the state - more than 48 inches annually. This is due to the warm gulf waters that carry humid air to the region, where it condenses and precipitates. The area is also prone to hurricanes, the most disastrous of which was the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 as well as Hurricane Ike in 2008. Winters are mild due to the warm gulf currents. Wintry precipitation is possible, but rare. For instance, it snowed in the area in December, 2004 - the first occurrence since 1989. A light snow was also received in December, 2008 and again in December, 2009. This region is cited as one of the most polluted urban areas in the U.S.
