Encyclopedia > Southeast Texas

Southeast Texas is a region in the southeast corner of the U.S. state of Texas. It is geographically centered around two metropolitan areas strung along coast of the Gulf of Mexico the Houston Metropolitan Area in the west and the Beaumont-Port Arthur metropolitan area to the east near the state border with Louisiana. Galveston, Conroe and Brazoria in the Houston area, the Huntsville area and Jasper are also major cities within the region. Parts of Southeast Texas overlap with Central Texas and the region borders Acadiana and the Sabine River.

Its culture is similar to that of Northeast Texas, but has more of a Cajun influence. Many of the largest cities in East Texas, outside of Houston, still follow a rural Southern way of life, especially in dialect, mannerisms, religion, and cuisine.

The South Texas State Fair is held annually in Beaumont.
