Also a small town in Texas, about 90 miles east of Houston, near the Louisiana border. The most recent stats I could find (http://www.portarthurtexas.com/edc/other.htm) showed a population of 58,196 in 1996.

Port Arthur, Texas is best know as the birth place of Janis Joplin, but also has many other attractions for tourists:

  • A buddhist temple
  • The Port of Port Arthur. Let's go look at boats!
  • Sea Rim State Park.
  • and others.
My rememberances of Port Arthur are of an almost completely suburban town, with almost no major shopping or metropolitan area to mention. The relatives that lived there (my maternal grandmother's family) were boring and the hour long trip tear-inducingly uniteresting.
