Take a tour!
Spring in East Texas will leave you breathless — flowers, flowers everywhere!
Tyler Texas is bringing the springtime with their 54th Annual Azalea and Spring Flower Trail!
March 15 – April 7, 2013 (the ribbon cutting begins at 10am on March 15! at the historic Pyron Home located at 212 W. Dobbs)
TEN miles of azaleas, dogwoods, tulips, blue bonnets – all the spring flowers you can imagine. Now, girlfriend (or guyfriend) I ask you – where else have you ever heard of an Azalea trail? Where else can you walk for 10 miles and be surrounded by flowers?
AND – where else can you have your picture taken with an Azalea Belle? That’s right! If you mind your manners and you ask real nice, these adorable young ladies will smile and let you take a picture with them!
The awesome people at County Line Magazine have laid out the history and all the details about the flower trail for you – Read about the Tyler Texas Azalea Flower Trail right here.
Stroll the streets, eat yourself silly – and when you’re done, drive on over to Trinity Pine Vacation Cottages (just 20 mins away) and sleep it all off in your cozy cottage. You’ll have made memories that will last forever!
We hope you’ll spend one of your spring fever weekends with us in one of our cozy cottages! Choose your cottage now, because they can go fast!
