I am in my mid 30's and husband is late 40's, we have. 4 year old and 2 year old. We decided to rent the first year and ended up getting a house in the green accres area is there an area we should really look into once we decide to buy? Any suggestions on day cares? Things to do with the kids. Also what is the YMCA like? We were heavily involeved in the one in mckinney and are curious if it's good; I also saw that they have a day care center.
Any feedback or info on the area would be great! We've been transferred there and will be living there officially in mid august

Tyler is equivalent to Denton which is decent size.

Ok maybe Lewisville or Richardson was a better comparison city wise.

Metro wise Tyler is the size of Garland or Irving.

Geez. On Topic you two.

Yes, welcome to Tyler.

How do you like Green Acres? Lived there on Jan Avenue for 30 years. The area is still holding its value, you anr close to everything and miss much of the South Tyler traffice outside the loop.

Have you looked at prices of other areas? Go to realtor.com and put in zip code 75701 or 75703. 75701 is inside the loop and older than 75703 which is outside and newer. Enter your price range and just drive by these places. Get a city map for free at the Chamber of Commerce downtown.

The YMCA downtown has been recently, last 5 years, updated. But may be pretty crowded.

The Caldwell Zoo is really nice. Thousands come down/over from the DFW Area. Several have sent positive comments on the zoo to be printed in the Tyler paper. One comment was "please keep the zoo a secret". lol It's a nice size really nice and NOT crowded. Oh, has a petting "zoo" area, a bird section where you can feed the birds by use of a "food stick". You know land on your hand/stick/arm and feed off the stick.

The Discovery Musem downtown is really a nice trip for the two kids.
The Brookshire WildLife Musem and old country store on the grounds of the Brookshire Central Headquarters in Tyler on the Old Jacksonville Highway is really neat for all ages.

The Villages Water Resort on Highway 155 South on Lake Palestine is a good choice. at 15 miles out.

Not too many people with children your age, or children at all for that matter, are on city-data forum for, but maybe someone will add other attractions. There's a Childrens Performing Arts Group at the Theater in the Round at the Rose Garden Complex. The Rose Garden maybe of interest too. Musem onsite too. A Childrens Garden on South Broadway at, can't remember the street name, next to Hogg School same side, East, of Broadway. One light south of Houston Street light.

I'm a former realestate broker, not active, no license, no money to be made on my part. But if you want to ask for more information on anything just contact me directly. Info on Tyler is my main hobbies.
