I moved to Tyler from a smaller town & can safely say that there's something for everyone. From foodies to artists to history buffs, there is a scene for everyone to enjoy. I've frequented many coffee shops to hear local music, walked the historical streets to take advantage of good photo ops, attended the county fair, and seen plays in the local civic theatre. In addition to that, there are numerous places to find delicious local food, great boutiques, and discount stores!

Small city, big town vibes. Plenty to do with two medium mall areas, good shopping at the new mall and old one. Lots of fun activities to do with escape rooms, lazer tag, movies, arcade areas, rock climbing gym, bowling, free outdoor movies etc. Good neighborhoods on every spectrum with well funded and kept clean parks. A great place to grow up in, slightly conservative majority, but that's Texas for you. Find your niche and there's plenty to do!
I absolutely love Tyler Texas! I have lived here majority of my life. Tyler has everything that anyone can need or want. We have multiple great schools ranging from preschool to college. Our school district goes the extra mile to give the kids plenty of opportunities. Dance, band, art are just a few things our kids can enjoy. Night life does not disappoint at all! We have a balance of movie theaters and upscale eatery's. Life in Tyler is truly a pleasure. Tyler is a growing town with a small town heart. We support our own and love with a big Texas heart.
