What to do in Tyler?

We will be in this area around Christmas. Can anyone suggest some things to see, visit, view, do? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!

The Caldwell Zoo is nice. You would be surprised at just how nice it is based on the size of the city of Tyler. There are many animals to see and the habitats are natural types.

It would be helpful if you mentioned the ages and interests of your traveling group. There are several other things to do in the area. Santa Land is in nearby Lindale. It is a very large drive thru Christmas lights place that's great for kids, probably good just for adults too for that matter. There's an indoor waterpark at The Villages that children will enjoy. There are several nice golf courses in the area. The weather will probably still be good for that.

Thanks for the info, that helps. The Christmas light display might just be a good thing. We enjoy those. No small kids, all grown up, but they are coming with us-3 college aged kids-LOL. We are going to the zoo in Lufkin. Any other suggestions, please send them my way. Thanks again.

Are you visiting family in the area? We live in the Tyler Area and frankly the only thing I would say would be good would be Marshall with the lights and such. Not a whole lot of things to do here.

Yes, we are. We have seen the lights in Marshall a few years back. I am hoping for some nice warm weather, so at least we can be outside and in the parks or gardens somewhere. Maybe the zoo. Thanks anyway!

You'll have to check the schedule around Christmas, but this could be fun if the weather is decent http://www.texasstaterr.com
