I'm impressed by the number and kind of stores for shopping in Tyler, compared to the size of city it is. I'm sure the stores aren't as large as the ones in big cities, but it's amazing that all those stores are there, to begin with. Macy's, Dillard's, Chico's, Target, a couple of Wal-Mart's, Sam's Club, Pier One, Michael's, Kohl's, both CVS & Walgreen's, Academy Sports, Burlington, and others.

I also saw on a website (Tyler Texas Shopping, Stores, Boutiques, Malls, Village at Cumberland Park, Places to Shop in Tyler, Shopping Map) that there's a new shopping center that was built (or is still in a state of construction but partially open?) called The Village at Cumberland Park. It's supposedly a 700,000 sq foot shopping center on 80 acres of land. It sounds great.

If there any other new development going on?

Better to live south by the toll road (I think that's 49?), or up around 69&323? There are charming looking houses in my price range, including in the old district north of 323, and areas east and west of 69 but aove 323. Goal is....ease of getting around for shopping, average size yards, walkable & bikeable neighborhoods, some trees, good soil for gardening. Where would you live, if you had the choice?

For instance, I live in Dallas. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend my neighborhood to anyone moving here, since it's one of the top 5 neighborhoods to live in right now. It's gotten a tad expensive (one reason I'm moving), but the location can't be beat. It's close to about 5 shopping centers, all the discount stores, all the major freeways & toll road, can work downtown or go north to work north Dallas. Old fashioned 1950s neighborhood with mature trees and wide streets, that is very walkable and bikeable, but is being overhauled by rich people moving in (building McMansions), so property values will increase greatly for the next several years. But the main thing is...the location.

Yep, Tyler is the retail (Hub) of East Texas, at least Northeast Tex. I still don't include Beaumont, to far SE, as East Texas, yes I know, technically it is, lol.

There are more upscale specialty shops on Bullard Road, just South of the Loop. Southern Cotton, heck, a small strip center, domed buildings, anyway, down that way. Go in the mall, it is pretty much updated with higher end, shops too.

Yes, The Village at Cumberland Park is a little over half completed. There are more retail stores/shops being built now
on Old Jacksonville Highway, both inside and outside the loop, most on down South toward Gresham. Scattered small stores on South down Broadway toward CPark.

As far as I a concerned you have found many of the areas I would live in. Also check out areas North of Grande toward just South of the loop, then just across the loop/inside, just North of Chillis.

You've done your "homework" quite well, lol Oh, lots of walking inside the loop, slightly older neighborhoods, or a few just outside the loop, just need to look for those.

Tyler has very nice amount of shopping options for a town its size...the last time I was there earlier this year the Villages, the Studio Movie Grille and Faulkner park were all impressive to me.

I forgot all these times, for walking/bike trails/jogging, Faulkner Park and the trails, Rose Rudeman, North and South Trails, which are going to be expanded over to Old Jacksonville Highway, then South 5-8 miles to Gresham.

Thanks so much for the tips to both of you. I am (finally) going within the week. I originally was going to go to see the Rose Festival (10/15 I think), but now I'm going before then, to miss the hubub.
