The 10-mile long Tyler Azalea Trail welcomes thousands of visitors to enjoy the beautiful blooming gardens, quaint brick streets, and historic homes of their neighbourhood. There are two marked routes: the Lindsey Trail and the Dobbs Trail. You can either walk or drive along the route. Some of the locals may offer you a closer look at their fairytale gardens, thus walking might be more interesting.
Along your way the aroma of spring in Tyler will open up to you with lots of white and pink Dogwoods, Redbud trees, Japanese Maples, tulips, and daffodils as well. Over 100,000 people from all over the States visit Tyler each spring. The official greeters of the Azalea Trail are the Azalea Belles. These are charming young women from the Tyler area, dressed in antebellum gowns. It is a big honour to be one of them and represent the city and welcome the guests.
