Spring Break Spectacular... In Tyler!!

Well, it’s just another Spring Break I’ll be spending in Tyler, Tx. But My chin is up because there is actually a good amount to do in Tyler if you know where to look.While I’m going to be spending a good part of it car shopping (The car from my last blog was indeed totaled) I’m going to grab some friends and have some fun. Want to know where and how? Here’s a few local fun places that are worth a visit:
  • Are you an animal lover? The Caldwell Zoo is a great place to meet with friends and have some fun learning about animals. If you love big cats especially, consider visiting the Tiger Creek big cat reserve just north of the loop! It’s really awesome!!
  • Thinking you might want to go for a splash at a waterpark? Bet you didn’t know there was an indoor one just south of the city limits at The Villages Waterpark building! It has all the things that make a waterpark worth going to, and the water is warm year round!
  • If you don’t already know about Green Acres Bowling Alley, or the Putt Putt place just down the road from UT Tyler, I’m disappointed in you. Two great places to compete with your buddies.
  • In fact, full-sized golf is available around Tyler at a number of places, too!
  • Looking for some go-karts and bumper boats? Fire MountainAmusements in Tyler is a hub for all the fun things that used to get you going as a kid. Check it out! There are games in the arcade there, too!
  • Interested in Flowers? Visit the Rose Garden for a look at one of the largest rose hubs in the world. It’s also a great place to play tag with your friends!
  • Try the Azalea Trails in Tyler, which officially open next Friday for a lot of fresh air and beautiful flowers!
  • If you’re not interested in the flowers but love the outdoors, try visting a park! You can try Rose Rudman, Bergfield, Faulkner (which is a sports facility as well) and even the Children’s park just up the road!
  • If all else fails and you’re stuck on campus for the break, Check out the schedule at the Herrington Patriot Center (or HPC) to find some fun activities over Spring Break! I hear the outdoor adventure club might be taking excursions, too!

If none of these things float your boat, there’s still plenty more to do around Tyler! Check out this website, which offers and extensive list of interesting and exciting things to do around here! Happy Spring Break, and stay safe everyone!
