Blooms & Booms
An East Texas Tour
Travel to the piney woods of East Texas, and you’ll find yourself in a place unlike any other in the Lone Star State. Rolling hills, pine forests, and magnificent lakes can be found within the Texas Piney Woods region, where the warmth of Southern hospitality is alive and well. Stop and smell the roses at the largest rose garden in the nation, located in Tyler. Known as the Rose Capital of America, Tyler is a beautiful stop on this East Texas tour. Cruise the brick streets of the Historic Azalea District featuring miles of blooming azaleas and dogwoods.
Then it’s full steam ahead to Palestine. Home of the Official Railroad of Texas, visit the Victorian train depot, more than 1800 historical sites, and prepare for a little sensory overload when it comes to the flavors of East Texas. Henderson, voted as one of the “prettiest little towns in Texas,” is another great stop on this East Texas road trip.
And don’t forget East Texas’ boomtown, Kilgore, known as the “City of Stars,” a nickname given to it because over 60 oil derricks that dot the Kilgore skyline, all topped with lighted stars.
East Texas is a hidden gem and a great place for your next group tour.
