So my husband may transfer to Tyler...we live south of Ft Worth right now so it wouldn't be to o far of a move from our family & friends. We have camped at Tyler SP before so that's all I know of the area, love the pine trees there. Can anyone give me some insight on what towns to look into? We have two kids, one going into junior high nxt year and one going into 5th so good schools and safety are important. He would office out of Tyler or Hawkins so no farther then a 35-40 min drive from there. We like a smaller town not too congested, preferably with some rolling hills if there are any in that area? We are very outdoorsy people so hiking, biking, all that good stuff is important to us Tia!!!

If your husband is working out of Hawkins, then Lindale would be about 20 minutes away. I recently lived in the Hawkins area, for about 5 years, from just what I heard, I would not be too "high" on the Hawkins schools, but you could do a lot worse.


Man, if your office is in Hawkins, the Harmony ISD, about 25 minutes away Northeast of Hawkins is known to be a pretty good ISD. but that would get you really far from even a Walmart. Hawkins is 20 minutes to the Walmart in Lindale. Hawkins itself has the nice Brookshires Grocery Store, a Dollar General, a Family Dollar and Freds, a Sonic, and maybe two good places to eat. A Taste of Italy on Lake Hawkins, is worth the drive from Tyler, even. You can also set outside and eat overlooking the nice lake.


There are rolling hills in most directions, now, some areas Northeast, and East and Southeast, and actually SW have pine trees, but not as thick or as large or tall, in most areas as Tyler State Park.

If you are based out of Tyler then I would agree with Kathryn, you would have many more options as not to be too far to drive.


Hawkins is about a 30-40 minute drive to all the South Tyler shopping, about 25 minutes to MOST of the medical needs, although there is a very small clinic about 5 miles north of Hawkins, and about 15-20 minutes from a few options in North Tyler.


Email us, if we can help with more questions you may have. You might very well enjoy the Tyler area. Best to you.

Our company manages a mobile home parks different areas. We manage one in Whitehouse so I am familiar with the area. I have to say compared to some other places we managed properties, Whitehouse is very nice. It has a really great school district and very clean. It's just south of Tyler, so it's still close to parks, shopping, etc.

A little self promotion here, but if you are looking for an affordable homes to buy, contact us! Check out our website: A Clean, Affordable Mobile Home Park in Whitehouse, Texas | Forest Hollow Estates
