For the past four years, I have lived in and around Tyler, Texas and I have been pleasantly surprised by my experience. Moving from Fort Worth after spending most of my life in that area was a little frightening. Living in the Tyler area, I have found a sense of community that I never had back home, along with a "small town feel", with plenty of activities for all ages. Tyler has something for everyone, regardless of your age, race, religion and lifestyle. Tyler has everything from a state park, museums, college universities, indoor waterparks and everything in between. Whether you are a high school graduate looking for an exciting college experience, a family of four looking for your forever home, or a drifter just passing through; there's a little something for everyone!
Tyler has many schools (updated elementary and middle schools, charter schools, Tyler Junior College, Texas College and The University of Texas), many parks (also a dog park), and a variety of eating places (including tasty independent small eateries). If you are into shopping there's a mall and a newer shopping center (Studio Movie Grill, Five & Below, etc) near by. There are a variety of things for all types of people (entertainment franchises, small museums, a bowling alley, golf courses, etc.). If you're religious there are an abundance (practically every denomination) of churches (also some synagogues and a Islam center). Some of the primary sources of employment include: various medical professions (two main hospitals and large health centers), education, services/industries (Trane, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.) Housing is possibly cheaper than average for TX and the country. The police department is pretty decent too.
