Welcome to Tyler!

A haven for botanical enthusiasts in East Texas, Tyler boasts the title of Rose Capital of America for its important role in the flower industry. Approximately one out of every five roses sold in North America comes from in and around Tyler, an accomplishment celebrated annually during the Texas Rose Festival held in early October. The spirit for floral gardening continues during the unique Azalea Trail event, which is held over the last two weeks of March and features self-guided tours of local residential gardens. Those looking to explore the unique and colorful heritage of the town can visit the Tyler Rose Museum, the Tyler Museum of Art, the Carnegie History Center and the Historic Aviation Memorial Museum. The area is also recognized for providing access to numerous lakes and parks that support a wide variety of recreational opportunities. Tyler is also home to the Caldwell Zoo, which houses animal species from three continents.
