Welcome to Tyler, heart of East Texas in the Lone Star State, at the center of Smith County!
Located in the rolling hills of East Texas in Smith County mid-way between Dallas and Shreveport, Tyler has a wide range of appeal.
Tyler's lifestyle is cosmopolitan, yet has the feel, benefits and security of a small town.
It offers benefits such as the East Texas Symphony Orchestra and a variety of plays and musicals, at various venues including the renown Cowan Center located on the campus of the University of Texas at Tyler.
The highly-respected Tyler Museum of Art showcases both permanent, rotating and visiting collections. The Museum is currently engaged in the design of a much larger facility.

Tyler also offers a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables from a number of area farms and farmer's markets. We regularly pick our own at places such as Blueberry Hills Farms in Edom, and the Tyler Berry Farm.
