My husband is taking a job based out of Tyler, but we would like a smaller town to call home. We currently live in the panhandle in a small town of 10,000, close to Amarillo. Our school system is excellent. We have 5 children, all interested in soccer and tennis. One is in the symphony. We prefer acreage rather than neighborhood living. Does anyone know of some towns that may fit the bill??

Wimberley! I love Wimberley, it is about 25 minutes outside of SanMarcus. So it is close to a city, but far enough to live in a small town. I'm not sure what your husband does, but I have always loved Wimberley, and its close enough to commute to a city for work. If I had the option to live there I would (I live in Houston)

Wimberley is great, but it would be a hellacious commute to Tyler!

Tyler itself isn't huge and you'll probably be able to find what you are looking for there. Smaller towns surrounding it are: Jacksonville, Lindale (they have a great FFA program), and WHitehouse.

Default A start

My guess is you would find Mineola a good place to start your search from.

There are lots of homes on small acreages in that whole part of Texas (unlike the Panhandle) Lindale has a good school district. You might check with the school super's office for a map of the ISD area.

Well, as I understand it, you are IN Tyler, so Wimberly, being a very neat place, as others are not close to Tyler at all, but next to Tyler, or Lindale, Whitehouse, Bullard as very good choices for schools and houses. 10-15 minute or less drive. If you want look at my many posts on Tyler. Tyler information, is, I guess a hobby of mine. All would have acreage within the ISD. Tyler has for private high schools thru grade 12. Symphony may be a problem, in most towns this small or 10,000 pop in Texas, I don't know this one.
